Two people were killed in a fiery crash on Interstate 95 in Miami early Wednesday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol said the crash happened just before 4 a.m. on I-95 northbound just before Exit 3A SR-836/Airport/Um/Jackson VA Hospitals.

A car that was headed northbound slammed into the barrier that divides the southbound and northbound lanes, troopers say.

The vehicle ricocheted and burst into flames as it crashed into the far right barrier on the northbound side.

One victim was pronounced dead at the scene. A second victim, a man, was taken to Ryder Trauma Center.

His condition is not immediately known.

The northbound lanes were shut down as troopers responded to the area. As of 5:30 a.m., one lane of traffic was getting by.

Driers are advised to take U.S. 441 or Biscayne Boulevard as alternates.
