If you are traveling out of Palm Beach County in to Broward Friday morning, stick with the turnpike because I-95 southbound may be closed for the entire rush hour.

All lanes remain closed at Atlantic Boulevard for a portion of I-95 southbound in Broward County after a fatal overnight accident involving a female pedestrian who was struck and killed by multiple vehicles.

Florida Highway Patrol officials say the deadly incident took place near Atlantic Boulevard in Pompano Beach before 2 a.m., after the victim was hit by at least one vehicle and died at the scene.

You will be exited off I-95 at Atlantic Boulevard. Take the Florida Turnpike as a alternate.
