JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Westbound traffic on Interstate 10 near McDuff Avenue was at a standstill Monday afternoon after a semitruck crashed and caused a fuel spill, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The FHP report said a 44-year-old semitruck driver, of Washington, was traveling west on I-10 and didn’t see another car on the road. Troopers said the semitruck driver tried to change lanes, lost control and collided with the barrier wall, causing a 40-year-old driver in a car to veer to the right, cross all lanes and stop in the grass shoulder.

Crews worked to clean up the spill and replace the damage to the concrete barrier wall.

The 40-year-old driver sustained minor injures. The semitruck was uninjured.

All lanes have reopened.
