A firetruck races to the scene of an accident.

Monday morning blues on the Florida Turnpike as all southbound lanes are shutdown between Southern Boulevard in West Palm to Lake Worth Road.

The crash involves a big rig that crashed into the median guard wall at Lake Worth Road ripping the rear axel off the back end of the truck.

This portion of the turnpike is also a construction zone and the crash is blocking the southbound on-ramp from Lake Worth Road.

The crash happened around 5:30 this morning and will likely be a problem for drivers through the rush hour.
