Northbound lanes of Interstate 295 at Baymeadows Road were closed for about 90 minutes by a wreck involving three vehicles.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a pickup truck hit a barrier near the construction of the 9B overpass just south of Baymeadows Road and lost control and overturned just before 4 p.m.  The big rig and another car crashed trying to avoid hitting the pickup.

One person was initially pinned in one of the vehicles and troopers say one person was transported to St. Vincent's Hospital South.
