6-vehicle crash blocks lanes of I-4 near Universal Orlando
ORLANDO, Fla. - A six-vehicle crash on westbound lanes of Interstate 4 in Orlando has slowed traffic, creating delays for rush-hour commuters.
Authorities are asking that travelers avoid a stretch of I-4 near Universal Orlando, advising westbound drivers to use the Conroy Rd. exit or the Florida Turnpike as alternate routes.
SKYFOX flew over the scene late Wednesday afternoon and observed that two inside lanes of I-4 westbound were closed to traffic. Among the vehicles involved in the crash is a semi-tractor trailer that appears to have rear-ended an SUV and pushed that vehicle up onto the divider separating I-4 common lanes from the I-4 Express lanes. One of the westbound express lanes is also blocked.
