Crash blocks portion of US 41 in Collier County

A crash with injuries Sunday morning blocked the southbound lanes of a portion of U.S. 41, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The wreck happened around 7:53 a.m. on U.S. 41 at Immokalee Road, according to the FHP. The westbound lanes of Immokalee Road are also shut down at the intersection.

Drivers should find an alternate route, according to an FL511 tweet.

It’s unclear how the crash happened, how many vehicles were involved or how long the closure is expected to last.
