It was reported that a Miami police officer was involved in a crash on I-95 at Palmetto Expressway in Golden Glades.
According to the report, the patrol cruiser was seen in the grass next to the northbound I-95 ramp to State Road 826/Turnpike (Exit 12b).
Report says northbound I-95 from NW 151st Street to the Florida Turnpike was temporarily closed so an Medivac helicopter could land. The officer has been transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital.
From the report, the injured officer suffered a broken femur and underwent surgery.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of a Toyota on I-95 nearly missed his exit. When he attempted to cross all the way from the left lane to the right lane to exit, causing the collision.
The two people in the Toyota were reportedly taken to Aventura Hospital with minor injuries.
Police reported that the officer who was injured was on his way home after finishing his overnight shift.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash. “This was a serious accident that left an officer seriously injured. Accidents like this are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they are preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you. We wish that all involved have a speedy recovery from their injuries in this terrible accident.”
