Deputies respond to semi rollover crash on US Hwy 27

POLK COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – The Polk County Sheriff’s Office has responded to a semi rollover accident on US Hwy 27 in Davenport.

It happened near the intersection of Dunson Road.

Deputies say the semi, which was hauling sand, was traveling through a green light, going southbound on the highway when a car at a red light on Waverly Barn Road made a right turn instead of stopping.  To avoid a collision, the dump truck veered into the left lane of the highway and fell on its side.  Deputies say the semi did make a “glancing blow” with the vehicle, but no injuries were reported.

The overturned was blocking all southbound lanes of the highway near the intersection of Dunson Road.  At this time, only one southbound lane is open to traffic as a towing company works to remove the dump truck.

We will have updates on when more information is available.
