A traffic accident left a truck partially dangling over a Gulf Coast bridge when the driver crashed through a concrete guardrail and caused major traffic delays on one of Florida’s busiest highways. The crash, which occurred last month, left the cab of the truck dangling over the Trooper J.D. Young Bridge on northbound Interstate 75 north of Sarasota for about two hours, essentially blocking all northbound lanes of the highway.
According to one news source, the 49-year-old driver was driving his truck down the highway normally until a car suddenly switched lanes in front of him. In an effort to not hit the car, the driver lost control of the semi-truck and crashed through the bridge’s railing. Fortunately, he was able to get out of the car safely, according to the Florida Department of Transportation.
