Wit­ness: Woman run over mul­ti­ple times on I-95

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - - Local - By Doug Phillips South Florida Sun Sen­tinel

A woman’s body was run over mul­ti­ple times early Fri­day on In­ter­state 95, says a driver who was stunned other drivers didn’t pull over to the side of the high­way.

The driver was among those who ac­ci­den­tally struck the body, he said. “Lay­ing across the road was what looked to be a body, and I couldn’t re­act in time and I ran it over,” he said.

The driver, who spoke in front of a news cam­era about the crash, de­clined to pro­vide his name. He said af­ter he called 911, he saw other ve­hi­cles also run over the body, but only some stopped and stayed at the scene, like he did. “I can’t be­lieve peo­ple can run over a body in the road and not stop,” he said.

The Florida High­way Patrol showed up at the crash site about 2 a.m., closing all south­bound lanes of In­ter­state 95 for sev­eral hours at the At­lantic Boule­vard exit.

Af­ter get­ting out of his car, the driver said he spoke to a mo­tor­cy­clist who quickly rode away from the scene af­ter in­di­cat­ing that the per­son in the road was a woman. Whether the mo­tor­cy­cle rider was in­volved in the crash wasn’t im­me­di­ately known.

The Florida High­way Patrol has not yet re­leased de­tails about the crash.
