POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — A tornado crossed over I-4 Friday night knocking over a semi tractor trailer and blocking portions of the highway for hours, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The semi-truck was traveling westbound on I-4 near Polk Parkway when wind knocked the tractor trailer over and onto a Lexus traveling next to it.
Debris from the impact struck two additional vehicles near the collision, forcing them to a complete stop as well.
News Channel 8 viewer Melissa Korta shared video from I-4 Friday night. The video shows debris flying all over the highway.
The crash closed the outside and exit lanes of I-4 in the area until 1:30 a.m.
Luckily there were no reported injuries from the crash.
