BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A 63-year-old Miami man is dead following a multi-car crash on I-95 near Glades Road.
It happened at 11:25 Saturday morning.
Florida Highway Patrol continues to not release names of those involved in crashes it handles, in potential violation of Florida Statute 119.
As a result, we are left reporting to you ages and locations without any other identifying information. It’s unclear why FHP continues to be so secretive at a time when most police agencies are working to ensure transparency.
