Traffic was forced off I-4 eastbound near John Young Parkway and State Road 408 for several hours.

Orlando police later reopened two lanes on I-4 eastbound and the Michigan on-ramp.

“It was crazy, “ a witness said. “The sparks were flying about 20 feet up in the air. That’s the first thing I saw. Until it got half way then you can see the Jeep rising above the guard rail and you knew it was coming over.”

Officers said one person was seriously injured and taken to the hospital.

“I thought he’d have a broken neck or something, but the guy literally tried to get up. He landed on his back. Craziest thing,” an eyewitness told Channel 9.
