I-10 Pine Forest Road Exit Crash Slows Traffic

November 15, 2023

An afternoon wreck slowed traffic on I-10 near Pine Forest Road Wednesday afternoon.

The crash occurred about 12:40 p.m. on I-10 at the Pine Forest Road exit.

A 27-year-old Florida man was driving a dump truck pulling an excavator on a flatbed trailer traveling eastbound on Interstate 10 when he rear ended a box truck that was slowing for traffic. After this collision the dump truck entered the south shoulder of the roadway and collided with approximately 200 feet of guardrail before traveling down a grassy embankment where the trailer carrying the excavator overturned.

The driver of the box truck, a 29-year-old Mobile, Alabama man, was not injured.

    Should’ve been three lanes when they did their three-lane work to 29. Need to three-lane this all the way to the Alabama border. When something like this happens, we go down to one lane. After that, traffic backs all the way up Pine Forest both ways and all the way up 9 mile both ways.

    Hey FDOT!! That stretch of I 10 needs to be 6 lanes. That is why their are so many wrecks on this stretch. Traffic load is exceeding capacity at peak times.

    Just passed by at 8:35 and they are still out there with wreckers and equipment trying to get things pulled up. Wet ground probably didn’t help much
