A shark was killed in a traffic crash on an interstate in Florida Wednesday, authorities said.
The sandbar shark died after it was thrown from a tractor-trailer transporting four sharks to an aquarium in New York that blew a tire on I-95 and ran into a ditch, the Florida State Highway Patroltold NBC station WESH.
Three sharks survived the crash in Volusia County, northeast of Orlando, the station reported. A SeaWorld rescue team transported the surviving five-foot sharks to a facility.
"They're in good condition," SeaWorld Rescue team member Jim Kinsler told WESH. "Nothing different from normal transport stress."
One day you wash up on the beach, wet and naked. Another day you wash back out. In between, the scenery changes constantly.
