Miami, FL – Truck Driver Killed in Accident on I-95 at SR 84
Miami, FL (December 17, 2023) – After being blocked Friday morning due to a fatal collision, the northbound lanes of I-95 near State Route 84 reopened, but police continued to investigate. For almost seven hours, all lanes of the highway were inaccessible after a Nissan Altima and a tractor-trailer were involved in the crash, which occurred at around 6:30 a.m. in the morning.
A Nissan driver was in the middle lane within the state when she apparently struck the back of a tractor-trailer, per the Florida Highway Patrol. As a result of the initial wreck, the tractor-trailer crashed through the highway barrier, overturned onto its roof, and then caught fire. The tractor-trailer driver died at the scene, though the other driver’s condition is unknown. However, EMTs assessed a number of injured victims at the site. An investigation remains active and ongoing in the interim.
We extend our sincere condolences to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their families at this time.
