The roadway has been cleared on the Florida Keys' Seven Mile Bridge after a fatal accident Wednesday night, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Monroe County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Becky Herrin said one person died and two others were being airlifted to a Miami hospital after the accident on the north end of the bridge at about 9 p.m. It shut down traffic in both directions for hours.
The crash involved at least two vehicles, and at least one of them caught fire, according to Herrin.
The FHP will investigate, she said.
