JUPITER, Fla. — All southbound lanes of Interstate 95 reopened in Jupiter after a tractor-trailer spilled lumber on the highway, shutting down the interstate for about four hours Wednesday afternoon.

The wreck occurred at the exit to Indiantown Road.

Video from a Florida Department of Transportation camera showed a semi-truck jackknifed across the southbound lanes of I-95 and pallets of lumber scattered all over the interstate.

At least one other vehicle — a white sedan — was towed away from the scene.

Traffic had to be diverted off of I-95. and as daylight gave into night crews worked diligently to clear 1-95 to get traffic moving.

The Florida Highway Patrol said there were no injuries in the crash.

Traffic did get back to normal hours after it all began.

Crews were using heavy machinery to pick up the lumber and clear it off the highway.
