OBT at John Young Parkway reopens after truck overturns, creates huge mess


ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. - An overturned truck had the southbound lanes of Orange Blossom Trail closed at John Young Parkway for hours Thursday.

The truck, carrying scrap metal, was turning onto OBT when it overturned about 5 p.m., according to Orlando Police Department officials.

Officials said no one was injured in the incident, but traffic was backed up for miles in the thick of rush hour traffic.

It took several hours to clear debris from the road and remove the truck.

Traffic was diverted onto John Young Parkway and Lee Road.
