The trailer of a big rig buckled on McDuff Avenue late Tuesday morning, hitting the Interstate 10 overpass.  McDuff was closed for a few hours, but has reopened.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was rerouting northbound traffic on McDuff Avenue traffic and Jacksonville Fire-Rescue was called because the trailer contained hazardous materials.

The Florida Department of Transportation set inspectors out and found minor structural damage, but there were no safety concerns.

Just before 2 p.m., the wreckage was cleared and traffic in the area returned to normal.
