PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — One of the arrival lanes at Palm Beach International Airport had to be shut down Sunday night after a semi crashed into an elevated pedestrian walkway.

Water could be seen gushing from the overpass down to the ground.

A sign on the raised crosswalk states that it only has a 13-foot clearance.
