A drive-by shooting on Interstate 95 and its aftermath halted life on the highway and at a Hallandale Beach 24-hour diner Sunday around 3 a.m.
The two people shot just north of the Ives Dairy Road exit, 25-year-old Donnell Williams and 21-year-old Crystal Lumpkin, were taken to Aventura Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Both were on the left side of a silver Nissan Altima that took 18 shots, FHP said. Williams, the driver, got hit several times and Lumpkin, sitting behind him, got shot in a leg. The two other passengers escaped injury.
Despite his wounds, Williams managed to exit I-95 at Hallandale Beach Boulevard and drive to the Flashback Diner, 220 Federal Highway, in Hallandale Beach. A Hallandale Beach police cruiser was in the parking lot. Williams and Lumpkin were taken a mile down the road to Aventura Hospital.
The ensuing investigation shut down I-95 north at Ives Dairy Road from around 4:30 to 6:50 a.m. There’s no description yet of the shooter or the shooter’s car.
