A semi is dangling off a Florida highway overpass.

The truck is at the Congress Avenue overpass at the Interstate 95 interchange Wednesday morning, prompting the closure of three lanes of I-95 southbound as a precaution.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a person who fell from the overpass has died. The victim and their job title have not been released.

The wreck happened at about 6 a.m. Eastern

 

The Florida Highway Patrol said there is no time frame for the tractor-trailer's removal as crews work to upright and remove it.

 At this point, officials say the truck is not in danger of falling onto I-95.

This is the same area where a semi crashed on March 29, causing lane closures for hours.

A third wreck at the location involving a dangling semi occurred on Aug. 4, 2016.
