The event happened while the semi was crossing the top of the bridge just before 9:30 a.m. The vehicle was knocked over by a powerful wind gust, according to FHP.

The Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department was able to extract the semi-truck driver without incident despite reports that he or she was stranded. The event did not result in any injuries to the driver.

Drivers should stay away from the area since delays are likely. In Jacksonville, there have been numerous reported crashes as a result of Tropical Storm Nicole’s strong winds and downpours.
