TAMPA — An accident that shut down northbound Dale Mabry Highway at Interstate 275 late Tuesday night has been cleared up.

Shortly before 10:30 p.m., the dump truck overturned after the driver, Antonio Rodriguez, 62, of Tampa, forgot to lower the truck bed, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The raised truck bed clipped the bottom of the highway overpass, causing the truck to fall over on its right side into the shoulder.

The truck was empty. Rodriguez was charged with driving on a suspended license. He was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries, the Patrol said.
