Truck Crash Near I-95 And Okeechobee Blvd Delays Traffic
A crash involving a tractor-trailer and a vehicle halted traffic on I-95 near Okeechobee Blvd, officials said.
A Florida man crashed into a tractor-trailer after running a red light at a busy intersection, FHP reports.
Florida Highway Patrol said the man was driving northbound on I-95 near Okeechobee Blvd exit ramp when he sped past a red light and struck a truck-trailer pushing it off the road. The man was cited for careless driving and may be charged for causing injury to a person.
The truck driver sustained some injuries in the crash. First emergency responders arrived at the site.
This route is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash causing traffic delays. Vehicles are seen pulling into nearby Starbucks and Walmart parking lots. It is best to exit I-95 via Southern Blvd or Palm Beach Lakes Blvd in the north.
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.”
