A child and a man who were sitting in the back seat were airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.
They were ejected through the back window. Their conditions are not known.

The crash happened around 9:30 p.m. in the northbound lanes of the turnpike near 216th Street when the car veered off the road, crashed into a fence and landed upside down in a ditch.
Lanes of traffic were shutdown for hours but all lanes have since reopened.
