W. BROWARD (CBS4) – A section of I-595 in western Broward County was temporarily shutdown Thursday morning so a Broward Sheriff’s Fire Rescue helicopter could land and pick up a person injured in a multi-vehicle crash.
The accident happened in the westbound lanes of the highway on the approach to I-75. The crash involved a car and truck which was pulling a small trailer. One person who was in the car had to be cut out of it by Davie Fire Rescue.
Chopper4 over the scene spotted two people, including the person who was extricated from the car, being placed on stretchers and wheeled to waiting Davie Fire Rescue ambulances. Just before 8:30 a.m. one of the injured was transferred to the air rescue helicopter and flown to Broward General Medical Center.
The names of the injured have not been released.
