A woman was killed and a man injured in an early morning crash involving a luxury vehicle that closed lanes of the Dolphin Expressway Monday.

Florida Highway Patrol officials said the crash took place just after 3 a.m. in the westbound lanes of the expressway near Northwest 42nd Avenue.

Officials said a red Chevrolet Corvette lost control and collided with the concrete barrier wall before crashing through a guardrail and coming to rest in the median.

The female passenger died at the scene while the male driver suffered minor injuries. Police have not released the identities of either victim.

FHP investigators have not released details on the crash, including if speed played a role. Lanes were closed for over five hours before reopening before 8:30 a.m.
