1 killed as truck crashes, dangles from I-95 in South Florida

A delivery truck with two passengers in the front cab dangles off an on-ramp from I-95 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. NBCNews.com's Dara Brown reports.

One person was killed and another hospitalized after the box truck they were in crashed and was left dangling off the side of a South Florida highway overpass early Wednesday.

The incident happened around 5 a.m. on the State Road 84 westbound on-ramp from I-95 in Fort Lauderdale.


Police said two people were in the Tracy Bakery truck when it crashed and ended up halfway off the ramp with its front end leaning against a pillar.

The driver of the truck was taken out and transported to Broward Health Medical Center where their condition was unknown.

Three tow trucks were brought to the scene to pull the truck back onto the overpass about two hours after the crash.

The truck's passenger was later pronounced dead, officials said.

Little said a second car was involved in the crash and a person inside that car may be injured.

None of the people involved has been identified. A woman who answered the phone at Tracy Bakery said she doesn't know the people who were inside the truck or where they were going to or from when the crash happened.

The crash left the two right lanes to the State Road 84 on-ramp blocked and two northbound lanes of I-95 just south of State Road 84 closed and caused traffic delays in the area.

No other details were immediately known.
