OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – An overturned semitruck spilled logs onto a major Osceola County road, causing traffic issues Monday morning.

The incident happened around 5 a.m. on U.S. 192 west at Nova Road in St. Cloud.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the semi was southbound on Nova Road and attempted to make a right turn onto U.S. 192 when the truck overturned onto its side, causing the logs to roll onto the road.

The driver of the big rig, a 51-year-old St. Cloud man, was not injured and remained at the scene, troopers said.

Westbound lanes of U.S. 192 were blocked in the area but reopened later in the day.
