A Miami-Dade rollover crash backed up traffic on three major roads all morning

A Thursday morning rollover crash on the Don Shula Expressway/State Road 874 backed up northbound traffic not only on that highway, but two other major South Miami-Dade routes to Miami proper, throughout the morning.

The 7:18 a.m. semi-trailer flip over into the median near the Southwest 88th Street/Kendall Drive exit blocked three left lanes. Traffic quickly backed up to Florida’s Turnpike. That car conga line stretched all the way back to U.S. 1 out of Homestead and Florida City. Another lane got blocked around 8 a.m. as attempts to remove the truck continued.

The Shula got cleared by Thursday afternoon.
