Several crashes stall I-95 traffic in South Florida

Four crashes on I-95 northbound turned the highway into a parking lot in North Miami Beach on Saturday morning.

From one accident on Ives Dairy Road all the way down to nearly 159th Street, traffic was at a complete standstill after the early-morning accidents, according to a Florida Highway Patrol traffic crash report.

A hit-and-run near Ives Dairy Road at 7:45 a.m. Saturday had blocked all lanes on I-95 North. Drivers were diverted onto Ives Dairy Road until 11 a.m., when officials were able to clear the roadway.

Later, another hit-and-run on SR-9A before the Golden Glades Interchange briefly blocked the left lane.

Others accidents on 135th, 125th and 119th streets also blocked traffic, but were eventually cleared.
