Several police agencies in Florida are conducting an investigation into a fatal crash in Palm Bay that has left a woman dead. The Florida Highway Patrol said she was driving a Chevy Cruze in the outside southbound lane of Interstate 95 near mile marker 174 in Palm Bay. The woman tried to swerve to the left to avoid a collision with a Toyota FJ Cruiser. However, she failed to stop in time, and the car crashed into the back of the Toyota.
The Chevy Cruze was traveling at a high rate of speed, according to the FHP. The Cruze then hit a guardrail and burst into flames. The Chevy then ejected from the roadway. The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead at the scene.

a truck caught fire on i-95 in Harnett County
Until Wednesday at least, a section of Interstate 95 in Harnett County remains closed. A truck caught fire on the highway, causing miles of backups. The fire closed the northbound bridge over U.S. 421, and inspectors with NCDOT evaluated the damage. They reported that all the vehicles involved in the accident were destroyed.
The NC State Highway Patrol is investigating the accident. The truck driver was the sole owner of the trucking company. He was hauling refrigeration parts when the cab caught fire. The owner-operator tried to extinguish the fire, but fled before the fire got too large.
The fire was so large that it engulfed most of the truck’s cab. The owner-operator reportedly heard an explosion behind him. But he was not harmed by the fire.
