Mocobizscene- A tragic incident occurred near the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport when a six-car crash resulted in the loss of a Miami woman’s life and caused injuries to three other individuals. As a consequence of this unfortunate event, the southbound lanes of Interstate 95 were closed for the entire Sunday morning, as reported by the Florida Highway Patrol.
The tragedy, as described by FHP, involved a 23-year-old woman who stepped out of her car to offer assistance following a collision between two other vehicles.
I-95 south has been reopened following several hours of closure. According to investigators, the incident began at around 4 a.m. when the driver of a 2019 Kia Forte lost control of their vehicle just north of the Marina Mile Boulevard/State Rd. 84 exit.
The Kia collided with the inside wall and veered across the highway. It came to a halt across the two middle lanes, facing west, leaving its passenger side vulnerable to being hit by oncoming traffic. While the driver of a 2015 Mercedes GLA250, traveling south in the outside middle lane, managed to avoid a direct T-bone collision with the Kia, they couldn’t completely evade contact and ended up hitting the front of the Kia’s passenger side.
The collision caused the Kia to be pushed into the inside two lanes, while the Mercedes veered into the outside lane. At the same time, the driver of a 2023 Kia Forte, who was in the one open lane – the outside middle lane, stopped her car and got out to offer assistance.
The Cadillac spun to a halt on the highway in the inside lane, while the Lexus came to a stop in the middle lane, both cars now facing the wrong direction after the collision.
In 2016, a driver behind the wheel of a Ford Explorer attempted to avoid colliding with a 2019 Kia Forte. Despite their efforts, the SUV still made contact with the Kia on its passenger side. As a result, the Ford Explorer lost control and crashed into a concrete barrier before ultimately colliding head-on with a stationary Cadillac.
