Six people were injured - including two critically - in a violent crash on I-95 in Miami-Dade late Sunday night, authorities said.

The crash happened in the southbound lanes of I-95 near 103rd Street when the driver of a car that was speeding lost control and struck a guard rail, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Joe Sanchez said.

Two passengers were ejected from the car as it then struck a wall and then hit another car, Sanchez said.

The two passengers who were ejected were taken to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition. Two others were taken in stable condition, Sanchez said.

The crash caused all southbound lanes in the area to be closed for hours as crews cleaned the wreckage and authorities investigated at the scene. They were later reopened.

None of the victims have been identified. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

"Due to the severe injuries, we're investigating this accident as a traffic homicide investigation," Sanchez said.
