SUV flips on Parker Bridge

NORTH PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - U.S. 1 in North Palm Beach re-opened Monday night after crews repaired a barrier system dividing north- and southbound traffic lanes at the Parker Bridge over the Intracoastal.

A one vehicle crash, just before noon, damaged that barrier which is part of the current bridge construction project.

North Palm Beach police say a man driving south in his SUV had cleared the bridge, but, for some reason, hit that barrier system.

The SUV flipped onto its side. The driver was flown to the hospital, but he's expected to survive.

All afternoon and into the evening Monday, drivers had to find alternate routes, and businesses in the area reported a very slow day.
