Two Major Accidents With Injures In St. Lucie County On The Florida Turnpike And On Interstate 95 Snarl Traffic

Two rollover crashes within two hours of each other send several people to area hospitals.

The first crash happened about noon on the southbound Turnpike at mile marker 167

The second accident happened two hours later also going southbound.  This accident happened on Interstate 95 at mile marker 133 north of Orange Avenue.  St. Lucie County Fire Rescue also was called to the scene.  A pickup truck was towing another vehicle when it rolled, according to the agency.  Two adults and one child were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.  This accident also had I-95 closed down southbound for 30 minutes and then it was slow to get by for another 60 minutes.
