Crash leaves truck cab dangling from Tampa overpass

- A flatbed tractor-trailer crash shut down the southbound lanes from Interstate 4 to Interstate 275 this morning, and likely caused plenty of drivers to grip their steering wheel a little tighter.

The truck jackknifed and cab of the vehicle came to rest partially over the barrier wall of the exit ramp from I-4 to I-275's southbound lanes in downtown Tampa. 

FOX 13's Lloyd Sowers reports the driver was not injured and was safely out of the cab when they arrived.

Rain was likely a factor in the crash.

By 1 p.m., the scene was clear and all lanes were back open.
