Expect Heavy Delays on I-95 Near Oakland Park Blvd Due to Truck Fire

Three northbound lanes on Interstate 95 between Oakland Park Boulevard and Commercial Boulevard have been shut down after a truck caught fire. Oakland Park Fire Rescue responded to the scene at around 10:30 a.m on Tuesday. The flames were quickly extinguished by the Oakland Park Fire Rescue, but traffic delays continue as crews work to clean up the road. The charred truck could be seen in the middle of the roadway with oil and fuel leaking. Firefighters were seen spraying foam all over the truck to handle the oil and fuel spill. The Florida Department of Transportation Severe Incident Response (FDOTSIR) unit also joined in the cleanup efforts. No injuries have been reported. All lanes were originally shut down but two have since reopened. Drivers are advised to seek alternate routes due to heavy delays that stretch back all the way to Davie Boulevard, as of noon.

Have You or a Loved One Been Injured in a Car Accident in Florida?

If you have been in any type of car accident, let our car accident attorneys review your case! Car accidents are perhaps the most common form of personal injury. Florida is a “no-fault” auto insurance state which means drivers in Florida are required to obtain at least $10,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance. To put it more simply, in Florida motor vehicle accidents, the Florida no-fault system allows an injured person’s own insurance policy to respond and pay for their injuries and other out of pocket losses like medical bills and lost income—regardless of fault in the accident. PIP insurance is designed to cover your own injuries, regardless of who caused the accident. It does not cover your liability to the other driver if the accident was your fault. If your accident is considered serious enough, you may be entitled to file a claim against the other driver’s insurer as well as the driver himself. Of course, if you are able to purchase more than the standard $10,000 in PIP Insurance, you definitely should. This is because many drivers in Florida are uninsured or underinsured. Many clients who are injured in car accidents find that their insurance carrier is unwilling to pay the full amount available to them for their injuries or refuses to pay any of their expenses at all. If you’ve been hurt in a motor vehicle accident and your insurance company won’t pay, an experienced personal injury attorney may be able to help.
