HALLANDALE BEACH, Fla. (AP) - April 3, 2013 -- Four people have died in a wrong-way crash on Interstate 95 in South Florida south of Fort Lauderdale.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash happened early Wednesday. They say police were pursuing a sport utility vehicle when it headed northbound in the interstate's southbound lanes.
Officials say the SUV crashed into a minivan at Hallandale Beach Boulevard, killing all four occupants.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the driver of the SUV was taken to the hospital with two broken legs.
