According to the Florida Highway Patrol’s traffic map, troopers were dispatched to I-295 northbound at Wilson Boulevard at around 5:27 a.m.

The semi-truck then went off the road and into the shoulder, its right side colliding with the left side of an abandoned SUV.
After that, the semi-truck hit a guard rail, drove down an embankment, and overturned, FHP said.
