Troopers: Tow truck driver falls to death from I-95 overpass

CBS affiliate WPEC in West Palm Beach reported that the semi-truck crash and death investigation has closed three southbound lanes of the busy interstate at Congress Avenue.

Officials say a tow truck driver who was working to get the semi upright fell from the overpass and died after the crash, authorities said.

The tractor-trailer was dangling off the overpass, forcing the Florida Highway Patrol to close all lanes.

One person has fallen off of the overpass at the scene of a semi-truck crash on I-95 in Boca Raton.

Officials say the truck's driver wasn't injured in the rollover crash.

Traffic on Interstate 95 is at a stand still in both directions for several miles back, and Boca Raton Police are urging drivers to avoid the area.

A third wreck at the location involving a dangling semi occurred on August 4, 2016.
