MIAMI GARDENS (CBSMiami) – One person was rushed to the hospital after a multi-vehicle crash involving a tractor-trailer on the Turnpike.

The crash happened in the southbound lanes of the Turnpike heading into the Golden Glades interchange.

When Miami-Dade Fire Rescue arrived, they said the semi-truck was fully engulfed in flames.

After the main fire was knocked down, crews had to cut a hole in the cargo area of the truck to reach the remainder of the fire.

Drivers were urged to avoid the southbound Turnpike heading into the interchange and take I-95 as an alternate.

The injured person was taken to Aventura Hospital, no word on their injuries.
