A section of State Road 528 experienced an extensive closure this morning after two vehicles became engulfed in flames.
The incident took place this morning at around 8:08 a.m. near mile marker 19 of the highway, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.
A 1998 Freightliner semi-truck with a flatbed trailer was traveling westbound on SR 528, in the outside lane.
The driver of the vehicle, who has not been identified by authorities, swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid colliding with traffic ahead.
As a result, the vehicle jackknifed and collided with the concrete barrier in the median.
After crashing into the barrier, the vehicle came into the direct path of a 2016 Volvo semi-truck with a container trailer that was traveling westbound on the inside lane.
The front of the Volvo crashed into the left side of the Freghtliner and both vehicles became engulfed in flames.
Authorities remained on the scene Monday for several hours to inspect a bridge before reopening the westbound lanes.
