Tractor trailer rollover Turnpike closures

WEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. – All lanes of the Florida Turnpike are closed after a tractor trailer rolled over.

Miami-Dade Fire Rescue and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene near Northwest 106th St., Wednesday afternoon.

All three northbound lanes have been closed which resulted in traffic to build.

The driver of the vehicle was OK, but fuel was spilled due to the crash. A hazmat unit has been called to the scene.

The tractor trailer is fully refrigerated and will have to be unloaded before crews can turn it right side up.

According to officials, only the tractor trailer was involved in this crash.

Drivers are urged to take Northwest 25th Street, 36th Street, and the 836 exits as alternates.
