Truck Crashes In Broward County; Driver Injured
A two-vehicle crash involving a tanker has left a driver injured and caused a delay in traffic in Broward county.
First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the crash victim was transported to Broward hospital for treatment. The truck driver sustained some injuries in the crash.
According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, traffic closed in both directions at I-95; southbound traffic and all northbound traffic are blocked.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue is on scene.
Deputies say traffic will be delayed for several hours until the fuel leak can be secured, and the vehicles can be up-righted.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Broward County Sheriff’s Office urges drivers to seek alternate routes on their commute.
“All lanes are closed; expect traffic delays of several hours until fuel leak can be secured and vehicles turned upright. This will be a long and protracted incident. Drivers should be very patient or seek alternative routes for northbound and southbound lanes,” BCSO said.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with trucks 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.”
