Two semi-trucks crashed and became hooked together Friday afternoon after one tried to make a right-hand turn, police said.
At 2:15 p.m. Friday, the Emergency Communications Center received 911 calls reporting the crash at the intersection of U.S. 301 and 16th Avenue East in Palmetto.
When Palmetto police arrived moments later they found the two semi-trucks blocking the right lane of southbound US 301 and the right lane of 16th Avenue East at the intersection.
The drivers had different accounts of what led to the crash, according to Cpl. Chris Metzger.
According to the preliminary investigation on scene, it appeared one semi-truck was attempting to make a right-hand turn from southbound US 301 onto 16th Avenue East and made a wide turn, according to Metzger. The other semi-truck’s left side collided with the first semi’s right side.
Palmetto police later called a tow truck, in order to get the semi’s unhooked from each other.
There were no reported injuries.
It was unknown if either driver would be cited since police were getting differing accounts of what led to the crash.
