Southbound Turnpike lanes in Plantation reopen after overturned truck moved off road

PLANTATION, FLA. (WSVN) - The Florida Turnpike in Plantation is finally open again after crews cleared spilled logs following a wreck that left a truck overturned on the Florida Turnpike.

Three hours before most of the lanes reopened, Plantation Fire Rescue shared an image on Twitter showing a truck that was hauling logs flipped onto its side, blocking all lanes of traffic south on the Turnpike and beyond Sunrise Boulevard.

It took crews several hours to clear the scene.

One lane and the shoulder remain blocked this afternoon where crews had pushed everything to the side.

It remains unknown if anyone was seriously injured.
