One Injured In Tractor-Trailer Crash Near Okeechobee Blvd And Military Trail
A Florida man crashed into a truck-trailer and injured one after a crash near Okeechobee Blvd and Military Trail, FHP reports.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a driver was driving northbound on Military Trail near Okeechobee Blvd exit ramp when he rear-ended a truck-trailer pushing it off the road.
The truck driver sustained some injuries in the crash. First emergency responders arrived at the site, troopers said. The crash victim was transported to the hospital for treatment.
This route is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles are seen pulling into nearby parking lots. It is best to use alternative routes.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with tractor trailers are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
