Broward Fire Rescue & Emergency Services had to fly the mom to Broward Health by helicopter.

She had “serious injuries to her face and abdomen,” according to Michael Kane, battalion chief.

The woman’s daughter was not seriously injured so she was taken to the same hospital by ambulance.

There, she was checked out by medical staff and reunited with her mother, Kane said in a release.

All lanes of I-75 have since reopened and the FHP is investigating the accident.

“Travelers are reminded to wear their safety belt when traveling in a vehicle in accordance with state laws,” said the FHP.
