The driver of a Buick SUV was trapped and burned to death inside the vehicle Monday morning following a crash on Interstate 95 that also involved a box truck, authorities confirmed.
Officials disclosed that the fatal crash shut down all northbound lanes on I-95 near Northwest 62nd Street in Miami for hours causing a massive backup during the morning rush hour.
The crash occurred around 3:30 a.m. Monday after the SUV ran into the box truck from behind.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Lt. Alex Camacho, both vehicles became fully engulfed in flames after the impact.
The driver of the Buick was the sole occupant in that vehicle, Camacho said.
He said the driver of the box truck was not injured.
The crash remains under investigation.
All lanes reopened around 8:30 a.m.
