Semi-truck rolls over on Interstate 10 entrance ramp

The crash closed down the ramp at Lane Avenue for several hours

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Traffic on Jacksonville's Westside was tied up for hours Thursday afternoon after a semi-truck hauling a load of steel rolled over on an entrance ramp to Interstate 10.

The semi-truck somehow overturned about 1 p.m. as the vehicle was rounding the on-ramp to westbound I-10 from Lane Avenue South, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department posted several images to its official Twitter account, saying multiple crews including a hazmat team were responding to the crash.

The ramp remained shut down for several hours while authorities cleared the scene.
