COCOA, Fla. - A crash involving a tractor-trailer that spilled oil and diesel on I-95 northbound caused all lanes to shut down in Cocoa Wednesday, but the roadway has since reopened, according to officials.
The Florida Highway Patrol said two tractor-trailers were traveling north on I-95 in the right lane near Port St. John Parkway. The first one was towing double trailers and the other was towing a flatbed trailer carrying heavy equipment, troopers said.
The first tractor-trailer was driving behind the other and tried to change lanes to avoid hitting it, but clipped the back of the flatbed trailer.
The first tractor-trailer overturned, and then the flatbed portion of the other tractor-trailer overturned, spilling the fuel and diesel, authorities said.
"It was kind of a major hassle, because I didn't have a clue how long it would be and everybody was making u-turns on the entrance ramp to get off of the blockage there," said a driver.
The roadway had to be repaved, officials said.
There were no injuries reported.
The crash remains under investigation and troopers said charges are pending.
