Penske truck overturns on eastbound I-10 near mile marker 68 in Walton County
Interstate 10 was shut down temporarily Thursday morning following a crash near the border of Okaloosa and Walton counties, according to a news release from the Florida Highway Patrol.
About 4:30 a.m., a yellow Penske truck was traveling east on I-10 near mile marker 68 in the right lane. A white mail service truck was traveling east behind the Penske truck.
The driver of the Penske truck, a 36-year-old man from Las Vegas, lost control of the vehicle after losing a tire, the release said. The Penske truck then crossed into the left lane and left the road on the north shoulder.
The driver overcorrected and the truck overturned. The rear of the Penske truck began rotating clockwise and came to rest on its right side in the center of the road.
The mail truck's driver, a 66-year-old man from Campbellton, failed to see the crash, the release said. As a result, the front left of the mail truck collided with the undercarriage of the Penske truck.
The vehicles came to a rest in the center of both lanes, blocking travel.
Neither driver was injured, the release said.
