NORTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) - Troopers have reopened all but one southbound lane on the Florida Turnpike Extension in Northwest Miami-Dade after a crash led to the closure of the highway in both directions.
Florida Highway Patrol and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the crash along the southbound lanes near Interstate 75, just before 5 p.m., Friday.
Aerial cameras captured a light colored SUV and a dark colored pickup truck off to the right shoulder of the highway next to a rescue truck.
About 45 minutes after first responders arrived, a rescue helicopter was seen taking off from the scene to transport a victim to an area hospital.
Investigators have not specified how many vehicles were involved and how many people were injured.
