I-95 exit ramp closed after Miami-Dade highway shooting and crash
The I-95 exit ramp to Northwest 103rd Street has been shut down for hours Monday as police investigate a fatal crash and shooting.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash involving two vehicles happened at about 3:30 a.m. in northbound lanes of I-95.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue responded to the scene and rushed a woman to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center where she died from her injuries.
Miami-Dade police say that in addition to the crash, the woman’s vehicle was riddled with bullet holes. Whether she died as a result of the shooting or the crash is not known, nor is a motive for the gunfire.
The other car involved in the crash fled the area, detectives say.
As drivers continue to sit in traffic that’s been backed up for miles, homicide investigators are carefully combing that stretch of I-95 in hopes of finding clues that will shed some light on what led up to the death of the woman.
