The northbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway are shut down at Northwest 58th Avenue after a trooper patrol vehicle rolled over early Monday.

The trooper suffered minor injuries and is OK, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

“Thankfully he was wearing his seat belt,” FHP posted on Twitter. It’s still unclear how the crash happened and if another car was involved.

Northbound drivers are being routed off the highway at the Northwest 58th Street exit.
