A man from Hialeah was flown in a helicopter to a hospital for life-threatening injuries after he collided with another vehicle on Interstate 95 near the Golden Glades Interchange.
The crash involved a BMW and a semitrailer. According to Florida Highway Patrol, the 69-year-old man from Hialeah was driving in a BMW in the right northbound lane behind a dump truck but ahead of a semitrailer.
In an attempt to move past the BMW, the semi trailer struck the car in a side brush manner at the driver’s side. The impact caused the BMW driver to lose control. He veered off the lane, striking a road median in the process. This resulted in a near-fatal crash with the man stuck in the car. The dump truck was not affected by the crash.
First responders pried open the bashed car with Jaws of Life in order to free the trapped victim. The victim was later airlifted to the hospital. The northbound lanes of the interstate are currently closed while crews clean up the debris. The road closure due to the severity of the crash is causing traffic delays.
The Florida Highway Patrol was assisted by the Miami-Dade County Police Department. Also responding was, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, and the Florida Highway Patrol.
The crash remains under investigation. Please drive with caution and stay safe.
