If you’re heading out this morning on the Florida Turnpike extension, pack patience.
A fatal accident between a motorcycle and a semi truck temporarily shut down traffic southbound at Northwest 106th Street, said Florida Highway Patrol’s Joe Sanchez. “Motorcycle versus semi. Motorcycle loses,” he said.
The roadway was cleared by 9 a.m., Sanchez said.
But it was slow going for early risers. All but one southbound lane had to close as Miami-Dade Fire Rescue crews responded to the scene around 5:30 a.m., according to WSVN 7.
