Interstate 95 Car Accidents Archives

I-95 in Miami-Dade most dangerous interstate, study says

Love it or hate it, many people in Florida have to drive the ill-reputed Interstate 95, sometimes every day. It's not just the inevitable traffic jams, making people irritated and late to their destinations. It is often other drivers recklessly weaving between lanes, tailgating and just plain driving aggressively.

Steps to take if you are involved in a car accident in Florida

You may be heading down Interstate 95 or one of Florida's other streets or highways, minding your own business and concentrating on the task of driving when suddenly, "Bam!" -- you've been struck by another driver. Car accidents can be frightening and confusing, especially if you are injured. However, they do happen, so it is important to know what to do if you are involved in a car crash.

Florida Highway Patrol officer hit by motorist on I-95

It is not unusual to see police officers in Florida on the side of the road, particularly on busy highways.

It is important to drive carefully when approaching officers in such situations. The failure to do so could cause a serious car accident.

Massive multi-car accident on I-95 in Florida injures 13, kills 1

No one in Florida likes a traffic jam. They're frustrating, make us late to our destinations and in general can be a real headache. However, slowed traffic is just a fact of life that must be dealt with. Whether traffic has slowed down due to road construction, whether a lane of traffic is closed due to an accident or whether it is simply the daily rush-hour, nothing absolves a driver of their duty to operate their motor vehicle in a safe and appropriate manner. As one recent accident on Interstate 95 shows, failing to pay attention to stopped traffic can have disastrous results.

New orange poles installed on I-95 have led to fewer crashes

When a motorist is driving down I-95, orange highway poles on the interstate's express lane are a common sight.

Dangers persist on Florida stretch of I-95

Semi-truck driver killed while aiding car accident victims

There are times in our lives when we must rely on the kindness of others when things go wrong. This is especially true when it comes to driving, as many unexpected events can lead to a car accident. Some accidents are minor, resulting in property damage but no serious injuries. However, other accidents can be severe, resulting in serious injuries or even fatalities. In any case, when other drivers in Florida come to the aid of car accident victims, they should not be harmed themselves in the process. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.

Truck collision sends 2 to hospital

St. Augustine drivers know that Interstate 95 is a busy place. Being a main federal highway that stretches from Miami up to Boston, it is used by hundreds of thousands of vehicles, of all shapes and sizes.
