PORT ORANGE, Fla. —
A multi-vehicle wreck sends logs spilling across I-95, a poisonus chemical into a Volusia County neighborhood, and a local man dead.
"It hit the mass up there, caught fire and burned, and that was the sequence of events that we know right now," Florida Highway Patrol's Captain Robert Duncan tells our sister station WFTV.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a logging truck lost its load near Port Orange, then a passenger car, a mailing truck and a semi got tangled in the wreckage.
66-year-old Francis Trammell of Neptune Beach was hauling a chemical in his semi, when he slammed into the logging truck.
He was killed at the scene in the fire and explosions that followed.
The dangerous smoke has cleared, but that portion of I-95 may be closed through tomorrow.
