POMPANO BEACH (CBS4Miami) – The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash on I-95.
According to the FHP, multiple vehicles ran over a body early Friday morning in the southbound lanes of the highway just south of Atlantic Boulevard.
The crash happened around 1:30 a.m.
A man who said he was the first to call 911 after he accidentally ran over a woman’s body in the middle of the interstate.
“Other travelers came along and ran her over again and again and no one stopped, only three people stopped,” he said.
Investigators have been interviewing witnesses all morning long.
One person who did not want to be identified said he too accidentally ran over the body. Once he stopped he saw another man behind him.
“I stopped, opened the door and I asked, ‘Is that a person lying in the road?’ and he said ‘Yes, she’s dead.’ I got back in the car and proceeded to back around him and as I was doing so he jumped on his motorcycle and took off at a high rate of speed and left the scene,” he said.
“I can’t believe people can run over a body in the road and not stop,” he added.
The FHP has not identified the person who died.
Southbound I-95 was closed to traffic between Atlantic Boulevard and Coconut Creek Road during the investigation causing major delays. The highway reopened just after 8 a.m.
