(WSVN) - An overturned trailer cab caused heavy traffic delays on the Palmetto Expressway.

7SkyForce hovered over the scene along the westbound lanes of the expressway near Northwest 27th Avenue at around noon, Tuesday.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units could be seen at the active scene of the single-vehicle crash.

According to FHP, the blue tractor-trailer was traveling eastbound on the Palmetto Expressway when it somehow lost control and collided into the median concrete barrier wall. As a result, the tractor-trailer drove over the wall and onto the westbound lanes where it overturned.

The hood of the vehicle could be seen resting along the broken barrier wall separating the westbound and eastbound lanes.

The driver suffered only minor injuries and did not require medical transport.

Crews worked to clean up spilled fuel from the vehicle and the expressway reopened shortly after 2 p.m.
