I-4 rollover crash

PLANT CITY, Fla. — Westbound Interstate 4 is back open to traffic following a Monday afternoon crash involving a semi-truck.

The crash happened around 2:30 p.m. on I-4 near Alexander Street.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a semi-truck driver was heading westbound on I-4 in the inside lane behind a sedan when the sedan experienced a tire failure.

When the sedan driver lost control, her car traveled to the outside lane and then back into the inside lane before crashing into the side of the semi-truck.

Troopers say the crash caused both vehicles to overturn, with the sedan colliding with the concrete traffic barrier.

As soon as the sedan came to a rest, a third driver in a pickup truck crashed into it.

The sedan and semi-truck drivers suffered only minor injuries. The third driver and his four passengers were not injured. 

The crash closed the westbound lanes of I-4 until 4:10 p.m.
