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.
