Northbound I-95 closed at Miami Gardens Drive due to rollover crash

MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - The northbound lanes of Interstate 95 had to be shut down at Miami Gardens Drive due to a rollover crash, Wednesday.

All but one lane was reopened by 11:30 a.m., after an armored truck was moved to the side and then removed about a half hour later, clearing the way for drivers after nearly three hours.

One person was transported to the Jackson Memorial Hospital as a trauma alert.

It appears that the armored truck violently struck a wall, knocking the concrete barrier wall on the highway to the ground.

There was cash in the armored vehicle, so as a precaution, police and other law enforcement agencies were called to the scene to ensure the safety of those involved.

Officials could be seen letting vehicles into the HOV lanes to try to ease the congestion. However, traffic could be seen going as far back as 135th Street.

The highway is now clear.
