The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) says everyone is expected to be okay after a serious crash at a toll plaza on Monday morning.
The crash was reported shortly before noon on Monday at the 3 Lakes Toll Plaza in Osceola County, Florida.
According to FHP the driver of the truck “failed to slow and struck a car and the southbound toll booth.”
Troopers said everyone would be okay but also noted that the driver of the truck was being airlifted for medical treatment.
The incident has resulted in heavy traffic backups in the area.
Backup on the Turnpike after a box truck crashed into the toll plaza SB, mm 236. At least three miles long rn, all lanes stopped. Looks like truck was passing thru the plaza when the front end smashed into the toll divider. I pray the driver is ok. #FOX35 #FOX35ORLANDO pic.twitter.com/k1whL9nmj0
