On September 13, 2011 members from the DeFuniak Springs Police responded to an overturned trailer in the area of I-10 (State Road 8).

The overturned trailer was found by responding officers on the westbound on-ramp with approximately 39,000 pounds of scraped metal spilled on the shoulder of the roadway.

Further investigation by DeFuniak Springs Police revealed that the driver of the Semi-trailer had entered into the west bound on-ramp and began to negotiate the left angle curve approaching I-10.

The trailer overturned, spilling all of the scrap metal that was being transported. The Semi stayed upright, allowing the driver to escape without any injuries.

The semi-trailer was towed from scene and crews responded to remove the scrap metal from the roadway and shoulder area to prevent dangers to other motorist.
