A highway sign blocked rush-hour traffic Wednesday evening on the eastbound lanes of the Palmetto Expressway (SR-826) after a truck struck and knocked it down, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The accident happened around 6 p.m. at Northwest 17th Avenue.

Joe Sanchez, a spokesman for FHP, said there were no other cars involved in the accident and the driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

All eastbound lanes were closed.

“It could be a while,” he said.
