A fuel tanker truck involved in double fatality that erupted in fiery explosion on State Road 528 overpass at N. Courtenay Parkway, Merritt Island carried 8K Gallons, 4x more fuel than originally reported, according to FL Highway Patrol.
The crash resulted in an explosion & fireball that sent flames shooting across the overpass & caused major damage to bridge spans & support beams.
Repairs are under way, though not expected to be completed until mid-Feb.
Detours are currently in place (which take over an hour each way since you have to drive n. or s. to another bridge). (Edited for space.)
Dental records are still being reviewed, & identities of both drivers killed in the crash haven't been released.
I can't be without medical care for over 30 min. At least we have a Publix & a 7-11.
Take a look at the video:
