Tractor-Trailer Involved in Severe Crash in Orlando

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on November 18, 2019

Early on Monday morning, a trucking accident happened in the southern lanes of the Florida Turnpike within the city of Orlando that resulted in massive delays as well as a hefty cleanup organized and conducted by the Florida Highway Patrol in concert with numerous other emergency cleanup organizations.

At the time of this writing, not much information regarding the incident itself has made its way into the public sphere. The lack of comprehensive information could be due to numerous factors. It could, for instance, be due to the lack of information held by the investigating bodies. Also possible is that the details of the incident include sensitive information that must be approved by authorities before being distributed to the public.

One of the pieces of information we do currently possess is that the crash resulted in the serious injury of at least one person. This individual, however, was not named. Often, the withholding of this sort of information comes about because injured people or their families request that as much privacy as possible be given to the victims. However, when the investigation reaches towards potential criminal charges, more information is usually made available about those involved in order to aid in the collection of additional details about the incident.

What we also know at this time is that the crash involved a tractor-trailer. It is not clear if the person driving the truck was the same as the person who was seriously injured in the crash, but this seems possible given that the initial reports failed to include any mention of a second vehicle.

The large lane closures that hit the area as a result of the crash indicate that the collision was indeed violent. It is possible that a large amount of debris was scattered over the roadway, preventing cars from making it through the area. Also possible is that the investigators looking into the reasons behind the crash saw the surrounding lanes of the Florida Turnpike as potentially holding needed clues about what took place in the moments leading up to the crash.

Until additional updates to the story are issued, we are left only with our ability to speculate on the reasons behind this crash.
