Authorities said a driver was killed after an accident along Interstate 95 in Pompano Beach caused him to be ejected from his pickup truck.
Report says Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene in the northbound lanes, south of Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach.
Investigators said the driver of a 2000 Ford pickup truck swerved to the right shoulder. Consequently, he over-corrected and traveled across all lanes until the front and left side of the truck crashed into the median wall.
According to the report, the impact of the crash caused the victim to be ejected from the vehicle and land on the left shoulder.
The driver, later identified as 37-year-old Willie James Kemp, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers shut down all northbound lanes and diverted traffic to the Cypress Creek exit while they investigated. All lanes have since reopened to traffic.
