BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The five-vehicle crash that led to the closure of I-95 for nine hours left one man dead and part of the new Express Lane on I-95 destroyed.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, a 34-year-old man driving a sedan was heading southbound on I-95 in the outside express lane near Palmetto Park Road. The driver “veered towards the left into the inside express lane,” wrote FHP in a media release. “For reasons yet to be determined, the vehicle veered back to the right as it began to rotate in a clockwise direction and traveled in a southwesterly direction through the express lane delineators, into the inside general-purpose lane.”
“The vehicle then approached the rear of vehicle #2, also a sedan, upon the inside general-purpose lane. The front of the first vehicle struck the rear of the second vehicle. After impact, both vehicles were struck multiple times resulting in the driver of the second vehicle being partially ejected from the right passenger door window.”
That driver, identified as a 63-year-old Miami man, died at the scene. FHP says “additional collisions between vehicles 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 are still under investigation.”
Other drivers include a 40-year-old man from Boynton Beach, a 45-year-old man from Boca Raton, and a 57-year-old man from Pembroke Pines. None sustained serious injuries. A 9-year-old boy was also in one of the vehicles and sustained minor injuries.
An initial report that a tractor-trailer was involved was incorrect. Two of the vehicles, however, were pickup trucks. The crash was first reported at 5:44 p.m. Wednesday. Southbound lanes on I-95 were closed until roughly 3 a.m. Thursday.
