ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Traffic was backed up for miles in both directions for several hours Thursday when a blown tire led to two tractor-trailers crashing on Interstate 95 near International Golf Parkway.

Both southbound semis landed in the median about 10:15 a.m., one on its side, and at least one vehicle fell from a car-hauler the second rig was pulling.

The two truck drivers -- one from Orlando and one from Miami -- were evaluated for minor injuries but did not require hospitalization.

By 1:45 p.m., all lanes in both directions were open again but traffic remained congested with emergency vehicles still in the median. Traffic didn’t return to normal in the area until almost 2:30 p.m.
