Disabled truck creates backup on Dale Mabry Highway

TAMPA — A disabled semitrailer hauling a load of cars blocked the southbound lanes of Dale Mabry Highway for about an hour Tuesday morning north of Fletcher Avenue.

The truck stopped in the middle of the road about 9 a.m., causing long traffic delays, authorities said. It was not clear what was wrong with the truck. The roadblock was not the result of a crash, authorities said.

Sheriff's deputies were sent to the area to control traffic before the road reopened about 10:15 a.m.
