Tanker truck overturns on 429 exit ramp, causing temporary shutdown

A tanker truck overturned on the 429 exit ramp near Winter Garden on Wednesday morning.

The accident occurred just before 2 a.m. The driver ran off the side of the road, overcorrected, and the tanker flipped onto its side. Thankfully, no one was hurt. 

Emergency crews were on scene early on Wednesday morning, as they worked to clear the scene before the morning traffic ramped up. They drained the diesel and the fuel from the tanker, so the vehicle could be turned and moved. This process took at last two hours. 

.The exit ramp on 429 southbound was closed at the Plant Street exit, but is now open once again.
