All northbound lanes closed due to a crash, traffic is being diverted off at PGA Blvd. exit.

The Florida Turnpike can be very challenging to navigate during busy traffic times.

Two Florida Highway Patrol troopers were injured Tuesday afternoon in a crash that shut down the northbound lanes of Florida Turnpike in Palm Beach Gardens.

According to Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Yanko Reyes, a truck pulling a trailer with three vehicles on it lost control near mile marker 113 and caused a collision between the troopers, who were conducting a traffic stop.

Reyes said both troopers and the driver of the vehicle that was stopped were seriously injured.

Reyes said the lanes were expected to be closed through the rush hour.
