Roads are blocked off in Cape Coral after a crash Tuesday morning injured at least one person and forced air rescue crews to respond.

The Cape Coral Police Department said officers and traffic homicide responded to the scene at Old Burnt Store Road and Gulfstream Parkway for a major crash investigation, at around 8:30 a.m.

On the scene, a Siesta Pebble company truck could be seen with a dent on the passenger side and missing a side mirror.

The person injured may have been riding a bike. One detective on scene told another, “did you take a picture of where the helmet hit a mirror?”

The extent of the injuries remains unknown at this time.

A woman from Siesta Pebble said the company is aware of the accident, and they are gathering more information and praying for everyone involved.

Cape Coral police said all four directions have been affected. The road is blocked off on Northwest 39 Avenue and Gulfstream Parkway in Cape Coral.

The police department asks people to seek an alternate route and avoid the area if possible.
