A young woman was killed and two other people were hospitalized following an early morning crash along a stretch of Alligator Alley in Broward County Monday.
Florida Highway Patrol officials say the crash took place just after 2 a.m. in the northbound lanes of Interstate 75 near mile marker 42, where a Honda Civic collided with a Hyundai Sonata.
One person involved in the crash, an 18-year-old female who was a passenger in one of the cars, died at the scene. Officials haven't released her name but said she was from Naples.
The 16-year-old who was driving that car and the 26-year-old woman who was driving the other car were airlifted to Broward Health Medical Center. The 16-year-old suffered serious injuries and the other driver had minor injuries, officials said.
All lanes were closed for several hours before the left lane was reopened just before 7 a.m.
Details were not released on what caused the crash as the investigation continues.
