Five injured when car slams into highway barrier in Miami



Five people, including a pregnant teen, were injured when their car slammed into a barricade on I-195.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that the accident happened just after 1 p.m. Sunday on the westbound ramp of I-195 to northbound I-95.

The driver of the Mustang reportedly lost control and crashed head-on into the barrier, which divides the northbound and southbound lanes of I-95.

One of teens in the car had to be cut out by Miami Fire Rescue.

The pregnant teen suffered injuries to her nose and hands. She was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

One of the teens was thrown from the car on impact; another went partially through the windshield.

Four of the injured were taken to the Ryder Trauma Center.
