Vespucci also is closed.

Those roads were closed at 7:22 a.m. It was not clear how long they would be closed.

Police have not released the identity of the injured person, other than to say the victim is a man and, likely, in his 40s.

A police helicopter was originally requested to transport the victim, police said, but was canceled due to bad weather.
