DPS said that the semi-truck was traveling southbound on S.R. 87 when it failed to stop for a red light. The semi hit the passenger vehicle which was going from eastbound Shea Boulevard onto northbound S.R. 87.

The semi went into the median after the collision, pushing the passenger vehicle in front of it. DPS said both of the vehicles exited into the northbound lanes of S.R. 87, striking two other vehicles. 

The semi-truck rolled over, spilling its load of lumber which struck another vehicle, according to DPS. 

S.R. 87 was closed northbound at Gilbert Road and southbound at Shea Boulevard for several hours. It has since reopened.
