YEEHAW JUNCTION, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Highway Patrol says one person died in a fiery crash involving a tractor-trailer and a car on Florida’s Turnpike in Osceola County.

A Highway Patrol spokeswoman says the crash happened about noon Monday in the southbound lanes, about two miles north of the Yeehaw Junction exit.

Authorities say the car caught fire and one person died at the scene after the semi tried to change lanes and collided with the car.

FHP said the victim was a passenger in the car and identified him as 63-year-old Gerard Hall of Fort Pierce.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the Turnpike’s southbound lanes were closed after the accident. The cause is still under investigation.
