A deadly crash involving multiple vehicles on the Florida Turnpike left a 23-year-old woman dead early Saturday morning, Florida Highway Patrol said.

The incident occured just before 1 a.m. Saturday in the northbound lanes on the Turnpike just south of Griffin Road, troopers said.

All vehicles were traveling north when the woman lost control of her SUV and struck a pickup truck. Her car began to overturn and she was ejected from the vehicle.

The victim's car came to a stop on its roof and her body was found on the inside paved travel lane, FHP said in a statement.

The driver of a third vehicle, a 64-year-old Hollywood man, could not stop his vehicle in time and struck the victim's car which subsequently hit the victim.

The victim died from injuries caused by the crash and was pronounced dead on the scene, troopers said.

At the time of the incident, all northbound lanes were closed, but have since reopened.
