    A man and woman died after their vehicle drove off an overpass ramp and onto southbound Interstate 95 in northwest Miami-Dade early Friday.

    The black Mercedes fell at about 2:25 a.m. Friday and went up in flames instantly, according to a witness. Florida Highway Patrol said the vehicle was headed northbound on the ramp toward Golden Glades Park and Ride before plunging off the overpass.

    FHP said crews were working on a damaged overhead sign and I-95 would remain closed for hours.

    Truck driver Orlando Cabrera told NBC 6 he had pulled over to rest and heard the crash. He said he tried to help save the two people in the car.
