Five injured in two-vehicle crash on I-95 near Lantana Road; several southbound lanes closed

LANTANA, Fla. - Five people have been injured, three seriously, in a rollover crash on  I-95 near the Lantana Road exit, said Capt. Albert Borroto, spokesman for Palm Beach County Fire Rescue.

Rescue crews responding to the 10:17 a.m. crash found that several people had been ejected from their vehicles.

An initial report indicated that one person may had been ejected onto the Tri-Rail tracks, causing the rail service to be temporarily suspended, Borroto said.

No one was found lying on the tracks, and a short time later Tri-Rail service was resumed, he said.

Several people were trapped inside one of the vehicles and rescue crews used the "Jaws of Life" to free them, Borroto said.

Five people required medical treatment; three of them met trauma-alert criteria and were rushed to Delray Medical Center, Borroto said.

The accident closed the southbound lanes of I-95 temporarily.

There are no other details immediately available.
