Semi truck rollover on I-95 prompts emergency response and traffic delays

Early Thursday morning, a truck accident on Interstate 95 in Miami, Florida required emergency response, including the airlifting of the truck driver to a trauma center.

What happened: The semi truck, carrying a load of Coca-Cola products, swerved to avoid an earlier crash and ended up overturning after smashing through a guardrail, according to NBC Miami.

The aftermath: The incident, which occurred just after 5 a.m., resulted in a spill of soda cans and water bottles across the roadway and prompted the closure of all southbound lanes between Ives Dairy Road and Miami Gardens Drive.

  • Authorities have reopened the express lanes to alleviate traffic buildup.
  • The condition of the truck driver, who sustained serious injuries, has not been disclosed.

Impact: The rollover crash involved at least two other vehicles and the severity of its impact required a significant response from Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and the Florida Highway Patrol.

Drivers in the area experienced major delays as cleanup crews worked to clear the debris and restore normal traffic flow.

The cause of the initial crash that led the truck driver to lose control remains under investigation.
