Multi-vehicle wreck causes backup on Florida’s Turnpike near Vero Beach

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, FL — Motorists were warned of long delays Monday evening on Florida’s Turnpike near Vero Beach due to a multi-vehicle crash, reports CBS12.

Officials said the wreck occurred at 6:48 p.m., on the northbound lanes before mile marker 174, near Fort Drum Wildlife Management Area.

It’s unclear what led up to the accident, but traffic cameras captured a line of semi-trucks and passenger cars sitting in bumper-to-bumper traffic that stretched to mile marker 171.

It’s unclear whether anyone was seriously hurt, but Florida 511 indicated the severity of the incident to be “intermediate.”

At 10:24 p.m., more than 3.5 hours later, the right northbound lane remained closed.
