18-wheeler plunges from deadly I-95 ramp leaving driver critically hurt

Drivers who try to maneuver too fast through the tight interstate exits to State Road 84 are risking their lives — and at least six have died there since 2007.

And early Friday, another driver’s life was threatened in a violent crash of his 18-wheeler.

Speed is usually a major cause of such crashes, said Barbara Kelleher of the Florida Department of Transportation.

“It’s a hard right angle on both the northbound and southbound sides,” Kelleher said Friday. “It’s usually speed, and a lot of momentum with those big trucks” that can’t stop as fast as a car.
