CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla.- Both lanes have been re-opened on southbound I-75 at Tucker's Grade after Wednesday morning's crash.
An 18-wheeler hauling two trailers overturned on the interstate in Charlotte County at Mile Marker 153, near the Lee-Charlotte County line.
Charlotte County Fire and EMS and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene.
The clean-up could take all day and will be in the handled by a private company at the expense of the trucking company. One of the trailers broke open and was filled with a mixed load of mostly paper products, so the clean up process will be tedious. The battery acid from the other trailer will need to be handled with extra care.
No injuries were reported in this incident.
