JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Slick roads were no match for semi-trucks along major interstates Thursday.
The most recent crash shutdown the northbound lanes of the Dames Point Bridge around 1:30 p.m. and reopened a few hours later.
Thursday's first tractor trailor crash happened around 12:30 p.m. and forced the closure of several lanes of I-95 near Lem Turner.
At this point, injuries from either crash are unclear.
The Florida Highway Patrol has released tips for driving in hazardous weather:
• Slow down. – Roadways remain slick after storm so if you have to drive, decrease your speed to avoid
• Be cautious of high winds. – Windy conditions adversely affect all vehicles, particularly high profile vehicles,
such as buses and t rucks, as well as motorcycles. Gusty wind makes driving difficult , especially when it is rapidly
changing speed and direct ion.
• Pay attention. – You may come up on an intersection that is no longer controlled by a t raffic control device. If a
law enforcement officer is direct ing t raffic, follow his direct ions. Otherwise, t reat the intersection as you would
treat an intersection governed by a four-way Stop sign.
• Flooding Safety. –Never drive into moving water. If you cannot see the roadway beneath the water, do not drivethrough it ! The water may be deeper than it appears and the road may already be washed away.
