Two construction workers lost their lives Sunday morning after an accident on the southbound express lane of Interstate 95 in Miami, Florida. Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) and Miami Fire Rescue were called to the scene just north of NW 62nd Street at around 3:20 a.m.
According to workers on the scene, the two men were repairing drainage pipes in a trench when a concrete barrier fell on them. The trench was in the center median.
Miami Fire Rescue worked with the construction company and used heavy equipment to lift the concrete so the workers could be moved. The express lane was shut down until 10 a.m. while the operation was completed.
