I-95 reopens in Volusia County after big rig crash
Semi overturns near Oak Hill
OAK HILL, Fla. – Interstate 95 reopens after a tractor-trailer hauling sheet rock overturned in Volusia County, blocking the roadway for hours on Thursday.
The crash happened at 9 a.m. on I-95 south at mile marker 237 near Oak Hill, not far from the Brevard County line.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, driver Michael Borres, of Longwood, lost control of the semitrailer for an unknown reason and the vehicle overturned, spilling its load and oil on the interstate.
Borres was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Southbound traffic was blocked by the crash, causing a backup for miles. The crash spilled drywall all over the highway and the cleanup continued into the afternoon hours. The roadway reopened just after 3 p.m.
Charges are pending and the crash is still under investigation.
A 66-year-old woman died in a three-vehicle crash on I-95 in Brevard County, according to officials.
