Fiery semi crash shuts down Interstate in Orlando

The Fairbanks curve on I-4 in Orlando, Florida has caused yet another almost deadly crash which happened Tuesday night when semi crashed, and caught fire which shut down traffic for hours. Likewise, the tractor-trailer lost control on the curve as the driver was trying to navigate on the Fairbanks curve. The semi was driven by 43-year-old, Jerome Adams, and crashed the truck into the barrier, and thus it burst into flames. All lanes on I-4 were shut down for eight hours at Par Street, and traffic was diverted to the shoulder, and the entire eastbound lane was blocked.

Amazingly Adams escaped the near fatal crash without so much as a scape. Additionally, no other vehicles were involved in the crash, and no additional injures were reported. The cause of the crash is being investigated. The stretch of the road where the crash happened is notorious for accidents, and is currently being re-constructed with flatter, straighter lines for drivers.
