Truck Dangles Off South Florida Overpass

truck hangingFORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – Rescue crews used an elevated ladder to reach the passenger compartment of a bakery box truck left dangling over the side of a highway overpass ramp in Fort Lauderdale.

Officials say two people were in the truck when it crashed about 5 a.m. Wednesday on a ramp from State Road 84 to Interstate 95. The truck came to rest halfway off the ramp with its front end smashed into a pillar.

The crash caused traffic to back up on both roads during the morning rush hour.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue spokesman Matt Little says one person was taken to a hospital in an unknown condition. He says the second person was pinned inside the truck and “unresponsive.”

A sign on the truck indicates it is from Tracy Bakery in Miami.
