LAKE MARY, Fla. - At least one person was hurt in a crash on Interstate 4 that had traffic backed up in Seminole County.

The crash occurred on I-4 at milemarker 96 just before 4:30 p.m. on Monday, causing two lanes to be blocked off.

Florida Highway Patrol said traffic was slowing down when a Mitsubishi steered towards the emergency lane to avoid striking the vehicle in front of them, troopers said.

A pickup truck was parked in the emergency lane with a flat tire and the driver was outside of the truck when he was struck by the Mitsubishi in the emergency lane.

The 44-year-old man was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center where he is in stable condition.
