Big rig slams into construction vehicle on I-95 in Brevard

No one injured in wreck near State Road 50

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – A crash Friday morning involving a tractor-trailer and a construction vehicle forced the closure of Interstate 95 in Brevard County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The wreck happened on I-95 north, just north of State Road 50. All northbound lanes of I-95 were closed, but two lanes reopened around 10:15 a.m., troopers said.

The FHP said the driver of the big rig failed to slow down or move over for a lane closure and struck the construction vehicle.

Troopers said there was not a driver in the construction vehicle, and no one was injured in the crash, which left the tractor-trailer overturned.

Traffic was diverted onto State Road 50 when all lanes of I-95 were closed.
