Police are on the scene of a wreck involving five vehicles -- one an unmarked Jacksonville Sheriff's Office car -- that blocked all southbound lanes and one northbound lane of Roosevelt Boulevard during Wednesday afternoon's rush hour.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, a white Nissan pickup ran into a Mitzubishi four-door, who ran into a SUV towing a large boat that turned left across Roosevelt onto Timuquana Road about 3:30 p.m.  The Mitzubishi then bounced off the left tire of the boat trailer and ran into a grey Mazda sedan, which into the rear of Detective Fowler's unmarked car.

Jacksonville Fire-Rescue transported Detective T. Fowler to Orange Park Hospital with minor injuries. Police said there were no other injuries.
