Huge mess on I-4 this morning. The East & West bound lanes are impacted by this semi crash in Lake Mary. The semi was carrying energy drinks. Avoid I-4 in Seminole County if you can — and watch @KristinGiannas for alternate routes now on @GoodDayOrlando. #FOX35 @fox35orlando pic.twitter.com/BCdLRWbZW9

The truck driver was transported to a hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The crash caused the truck’s load of energy drinks to spill onto I-4 and in the median of the interstate.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) said that the left lane of the interstate was shut down in both directions for cleanup of the crash, resulting in traffic backups.
