St. Augustine, FL – Tractor-Trailer Accident with Injuries on I-95
St. Augustine, FL (March 3, 2020) – Early this morning, a tractor-trailer accident with injuries took place on I-95 in St. Augustine involving two trucks.
The accident occurred when two tractor-trailers and a pickup truck collided on the highway. The accident was so severe that it caused diesel to spill all over the roadway and caused a massive buildup in traffic.
Two of the drivers involved in the accident were taken to the Flagler Hospital. Their injuries were non-life-threatening in nature.
The Florida Highway Patrol found that a truck rear-ended a slower-moving truck in front of it, which is when a pickup truck came along and struck the rear of the second truck.
Police continue their investigation into the accident.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
