Interstate 4 Accidents
Early on Tuesday morning, members of the Orlando Fire Department joined with the Florida Highway Patrol as well paramedics and first responders throughout the area to respond to reports of an overturned tractor trailer on I-4, close to where it crosses State Road 408. This mobilization of emergency personnel was the result of a 9-1-1 call from a witness to the accident which was placed close to 6:00 in the morning. According to the official report, the caller told dispatchers that a tractor trailer had fallen onto its side on I-4. What made the case somewhat extraordinary was that the truck had, according to the caller, tipped over onto a car. The caller told the dispatcher that it seemed as though someone was still inside the vehicle, trapped, but still able to communicate.
