Traffic snarl on Florida Turnpike heading into Miami

Motorists heading south on Florida’s Turnpike, beware.

Traffic was backed up on the turnpike’s southbound lanes Thursday from the Fort Lauderdale city limit to Interstate 95 in Miami Dade County. Ambulance and police vehicles were trying to get through the traffic, which had slowed to a crawl.

“It was an accident in the Miramar area,’’ said Sgt. Mark Wysocky of the Florida Highway Patrol. “They’re in the process of clearing it now.”

Details of the accident were unavailable.
