MIAMI GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - Four people were transported to the hospital, Thursday, after a major collision.

The taxi cab driver was thrown into the passenger seat due to the impact of the crash, which occurred just before 8:30 a.m. The driver had to be removed from the vehicle.

Two other victims were also transported to area hospitals.

All of the southbound lanes were closed and motorists were forced to get by on the shoulder while officials investigated. However, all lanes have since been reopened.
