The process of rescuing victims if they get trapped after a car crash can be difficult. This is how firefighters do it.

Two lanes of Interstate 95 northbound through Broward County are blocked as the Friday morning rush hour begins after a semi-truck crashed onto I-95 from the State Road 84 ramp near I-595 in Fort Lauderdale.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue said the driver of the 18-wheeler was taken to Broward Health in critical condition.

Though the crash happened before 1 a.m., the extensive cleanup still had two lanes blocked and might block more later in the morning. Drivers should consider using U.S. 1 or U.S. 441 as an alternate route.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
