WEST BROWARD, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews have taken four people to the hospital, including two children, after they were involved in a rollover wreck along Interstate 75 in West Broward.
7Skyforce HD hovered above the scene of the single-vehicle crash on mile marker 39, along the westbound lanes, just before 5 p.m., Thursday.
According to witnesses who called 911, an SUV blew a tire, veered off the roadway, flipped upside down and came to rest on the high grass, narrowly avoiding going into the water.
The overturned blue Honda SUV involved was seen in a ditch, off the side of the highway.
Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue crews had to cut the passengers’ seat belts to remove them from the vehicle.
Officials said one of the children, a 7-year-old girl, was airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center as a trauma alert, while the other victims were transported by ground with injuries that are not life-threatening.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers shut down both westbound lanes while they investigated. They have since reopened to traffic.
