Law enforcement officials say that several cars were involved in a crash that left multiple people injured after a tractor trailer flipped over on Beach Boulevard.
Police said the accident happened on Beach Boulevard where a tractor trailer carrying a load of roadway striping paint was headed eastbound.
The truck was said to be traveling above the speed limit when it hit a bump that caused it to spin out of control. The paint the truck was carrying spilled all over the road as vehicles behind the truck tried to swerve out of the way. Many of the vehicles behind the semi could not avoid colliding with the debris and each other.
EMS arrived on the scene and reported that multiple victims, including the truck driver, had been injured in the crash. Emergency responders said some of the people involved suffered severe injuries. These victims were immediately transferred to the nearest hospital for further medical treatment while others only suffered minor injuries and were treated at the site of the accident.
Officials did not release the identities or the number of victims involved in the accident to the public and say that the incident is still under investigating.
