A woman was killed when she was struck by two vehicles after she got out of her car on the Dolphin Expressway in Miami-Dade early Thursday, authorities said.
Florida Highway Patrol officials said troopers were called to the scene of the crash in the westbound lanes of the Dolphin Expressway near Northwest 107th Avenue before 3:30 a.m.
According to FHP, a black Toyota SUV was stopped in the westbound lanes when a black Audi SUV collided with it. The female driver of the Toyota was outside of her vehicle and was also struck.
After being hit, the female victim landed on the roadway and was struck by another vehicle, a silver Honda, and died at the scene. Officials have not released her identity.
