CLINTON (WATE) - All lanes of I-75 were blocked off Friday morning after a tractor trailer flipped on its side.

The incident happened near mile marker 126, near Lake City, before 10 a.m.

The roadway was completely blocked by the truck and traffic had to be diverted onto Highway 441 and Highway 25W.

The truck was removed from the roadway around 12:30 p.m., but a five-mile back up remained for several minutes while traffic was cleared.

There's no word yet on what caused the crash.
