Riviera Beach, FL (WFLX)

An eighteen-wheeler rolled over shortly after 11 this morning, closing down part of Blue Heron Boulevard for a couple of hours.

Riviera Beach Police say a semi-truck hauling brush and other debris overturned as the driver was getting off I-95 and turning west onto Blue Heron Boulevard.

Police say he was either going too fast or the load in the truck shifted, causing it to flip.

The westbound lanes of Blue Heron were closed while workers cleaned up the mess, and two tow trucks were brought in to get the truck back in the upright position.

The truck driver was not injured.

The west bound lanes are now open again.
