Tanker Truck Crashes In Broward County
A tanker truck crashed on I-95 near Fort Lauderdale in western Broward County.
The truck driver sustained some injuries in the crash. First emergency responders arrived at the site of the crash soon after the accident happened and the injured victim was transported to a Broward hospital for treatment.
According to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, I-95 is at a standstill in both directions; southbound traffic and all northbound traffic is blocked.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue is on the scene.
Deputies say traffic will be delayed for several hours. “All lanes are closed. Expect traffic delays of several hours. Drivers should be very patient or seek alternative routes for northbound and southbound lanes,” BCSO said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. Broward County Sheriff’s Office urges drivers to seek alternate routes on their commute.
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.”
