On behalf of Omar Medina in Lakeland:
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the accident happened on I-4 near Kathleen Road and authorities said the driver was not hurt.
The driver failed to control the truck and drove onto the outside shoulder, the truck hit the guard rail and bounced into a railroad track support pier. The crash ripped open the top of the truck and packages fell out on the roadway. Officials had to re-route traffic and this caused a huge backup for miles before trooper began to reopen the lanes before 7am.
This accident also caused two additional crashes in the traffic backup. One involving a dump truck but there were no injuries. FedEx officials are trying to expedite the deliver of the packages. The crash remains under investigation.
