Sneezing Attack Causes Tractor-Trailer To Jackknife On Florida Interstate

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says a tractor-trailer driver had a sneezing attack just before he veered off Interstate 95 and jackknifed.

The crash happened just before 4:30 a.m. Friday in the northbound lanes of I-95 in central Florida. The exit ramp to State Road 528 was closed while workers cleaned up fuel that spilled onto the roadway when the truck’s fuel tank ruptured.

FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes told the Orlando Sentinel that charges are pending against the driver, 43-year-old Joseph Williams of Jacksonville.
