Authorities reported a police involved crash on the Florida Turnpike in Miramar that backed up traffic for several hours.
According to the authorities, the crash happened in the northbound lane of the Florida Turnpike near Red Road. Reports indicate that a Sunny Beach police cruiser was badly damaged on the side of the highway. The collision caused a dump truck to skid off the highway into the grass. Troopers say two other vehicles were involved in the crash.
Sgt. Brian Schnell of the Sunny Isles Beach Police said the officer was taken to the hospital and is expected to fully recover. His injuries were not life-threatening.
The right lane was closed, but traffic was backed up at least four miles. The cause of the crash is under investigation. No other details were immediately released.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “We never want to see those that protect us involved in an accident with injuries. But with the millions of miles that law enforcement drives during their patrols, accidents will happen. We hope that all involved have minor injuries and have a full recovery. We also hope that they seek experienced legal counsel to help them through this difficult process.”
