Authorities reported a woman was killed in a traffic accident along Interstate 95 in Fort Lauderdale as she tended to her disabled vehicle.
According to Feola Alvaro, a spokeswoman for the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened when the woman pulled her Toyota Corolla to the shoulder of I-95 near Broward Boulevard due to a flat rear tire. She left the car and was standing in the roadway when the driver of a Mercedes Benz slammed into her and her vehicle.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the woman, though yet to be identified, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the Mercedes Benz stayed at the scene. They say alcohol and drugs were not involved in the crash.
Meanwhile, several lanes were shut down as the crash was investigated and traffic was backed up between the exits for Dania Beach and Sunrise Boulevards. Northbound lanes have reopened.
The accident remains under investigation.
