    One person was killed after a semi-truck crashed and was left dangling off an Interstate 95 overpass in Boca Raton, Florida, at about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, authorities said.

    Three southbound lanes of the interstate in Palm Beach County were closed as a precaution which caused traffic on the road to be backed up for miles, as far north as Delray Beach.

    Officials say a tow truck driver, 69-year-old Richard Randolph, was working to get the semi upright when he fell from the overpass. Randolph was pronounced dead at the scene.

    Rescue crews were able to remove the truck from the wall and had it upright around 10:20 a.m. FHP investigators say the driver of the semi-truck, Adrian Figueredo of Miami, struck the concrete center median when exiting the interestate and came to rest over the wall.

    He was charged with making an improper turn and for going beyond the hours limit for drivers.

    It’s the third such wreck involving a semi-truck at the Congress Avenue overpass in just over eight months.
