Main Street Bridge Closed for Hours Following Armored Truck Crash
News

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Main Street bridge was closed for three hours on Sunday due to an overturned truck on the bridge.

A Brink's truck overturned on the bridge around 10:30 a.m. and spilled diesel fuel on the bridge. The fire department cleaned that up to make it safe to reopen the bridge.

Two Brink's employees were transported to the hospital. The driver of the truck was wearing a seatbelt, but another employee was in the back of the truck and got tossed around during the accident. None of the injuries are life threatening.

Police are investigating the cause of the accident.  It appears that the truck veered up on the curb of the bridge, hit one of the metal support beams, went up the beam a few feet and then overturned in the middle of the road. The right front of the truck was severely damaged and the right wheel came off the truck.

The bridge reopened at 1:35 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
