A sedan was traveling westbound in the center lane. The driver of the semi-truck did not see the sedan, FHP said, and began to change lanes, colliding with the left side of the sedan.
The semi-truck veered back into the inside lane, lost control of the vehicle and then hit the concrete barrier wall.
