Three people were hospitalized after a rollover crash involving a tractor-trailer on the Florida's Turnpike in Miami-Dade Wednesday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said the tractor-trailer was heading south on the Turnpike near Northwest 199th Street when the driver lost control and crashed into the center median barrier wall.

As a result, the tractor-trailer jackknifed and went over the median wall, overturning into the northbound lanes where a black BMW and a white SUV crashed into it, officials said.
