FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - Rescue crews took a woman to the hospital after she drove off an entrance ramp to Interstate 95 in Fort Lauderdale, the second such crash at the same location in two days, authorities said.
Florida Highway Patrol and Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue units responded to the scene near State Road 84, Sunday afternoon.
Investigators said the driver lost control and went through the barricades and wall, just after 3:45 p.m.
The car landed on its roof on the right shoulder of I-95 southbound.
Paramedics transported the victim to Broward Health Medical Center with injuries that were serious but not life-threatening.
Crews transported two men to the hospital with more serious injuries Saturday afternoon after, investigators said, their Cadillac SUV plunged off the same entrance ramp.
The driver in Sunday’s crash went through a wall that had just been repaired as a result of Saturday’s crash. The ramp will remain closed while repairs are made.
The Florida Department of Transportation released a statement saying in part, “The Florida Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the incidents. In response to the incidents, the contractor responded immediately to temporarily address the areas and the department is in the process of reviewing the ramp to determine if any additional measures are recommended.”
The female victim is expected to be OK. The status of the condition of the two men in the black Cadillac is currently unknown.
