An overturned pickup truck and trailer blocked the westbound lanes of Interstate 4 near Lakeland for several hours on Friday.

The scene was at mile marker 28, which is west of the city. The Florida Highway Patrol said a pickup truck was towing a travel trailer when it began to fishtail and lost control before overturning there before 11:30 a.m.

Both the driver and a passenger suffered minor injuries in the crash.
