General lanes have re-opened and express lanes should reopen before 8:30 a.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol, after a fatal wrong-way driver crash shut down southbound Interstate 95 lanes near Northwest 62nd Street for several hours Thursday morning.
With traffic still clogged more than usual, another lane-blocking crash near Miami Gardens Drive around 7:20 a.m. meant drivers out of Broward County might want to avoid I-95 altogether. Consider U.S. 1 or U.S. 441 options.
The crash happened around 2:10 a.m., seconds after FHP received a call of a speeding driver going northbound in the southbound lanes. A BMW crashed head-on with a water truck parked in the closed express lanes. The driver died on the scene.
