Tanker truck crash shuts down U.S. 27 at I-75

A crash involving a tanker truck shut down U.S. 27 in both directions Friday morning.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office said the crash caused an active fuel leak which would shut down the road in both directions for several hours. Hazmat crews were called out to the scene to contain the leak.

U.S. 27 is closed between I-75 and Griffin Road. It is expected to be closed for several hours.

Drivers should take the Sawgrass Expressway or I-75 as an alternate.
