ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – Traffic on Florida's Turnpike in Orlando has slowed down after a semi overturned Monday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said the semi was driving from Interstate 4 to southbound Turnpike at exit 259, near Disney World, when it overturned shortly before 11 a.m.
The trailer will be dragged into the median so authorities can off-load the 30,000 pounds of paper the truck was hauling.
At least one lane will be blocked until the trailer can be moved.

A man who says he owns the semitruck company sent photos to News 6 and said the incident happened because the customer did not properly load the trailer.
Troopers said charges are pending against the semitruck driver.
