TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — One person was minorly injured in a crash that caused major delays on I-10 westbound Wednesday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said that a Toyota Camry driven by a 26-year-old Tallahassee woman was traveling westbound on I-10 just a mile away from the Thomasville Road exit while a UPS semi-truck pulling trailer was also traveling nearby.

According to witnesses on scene, the driver of the Camry swerved in an attempt to avoid crashing into another vehicle, which caused the car to begin spinning clockwise.

The car then went across the westbound lanes as it spun and crashed into the semi's trailer, wedging under it.

At the time of the crash, the two right lanes of I-10 were blocked due to the crash, causing a traffic back up. Around 9:15 a.m., the crash was cleared and all lanes were reopened.

The driver of the Camry suffered minor injuries but was not hospitalized. The driver of the semi-truck, a 57-year-old man from Miami, was uninjured in the crash.
