INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Two people were hurt after a rollover crash involving a semi-trailer that blocked traffic in all directions for five hours early Tuesday, officials said.

Roads were closed from a 25-gallon fuel spill caused by the crash, a fire rescue crewman said. All lanes were reopen by 9:30 a.m., officials said.

The crash involving the semi flatbed with a load of sod and a truck pulling a lawn trailer happened about 5:30 a.m. Tuesday at 8th Street and 27th Avenue, Indian River County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Kyle Kofke said. The Indian River County Sheriff’s Office tweeted a photo of what appeared to be the semi-trailer rolled on its side.

One person was taken by ambulance to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center & Heart Institute in Fort Pierce with non-life threatening injuries, Kofke said. The other person was taken to Indian River Medical Center with minor injuries.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash. Further details on the collision and the two hurt were not immediately available.
