A man was killed and two Miami police officers were taken to the hospital after a crash Friday morning, authorities said.
The crash involving a police car and a box truck happened around 11:50 a.m. at Northwest 25th Avenue and 28th Street, said Officer Michael Vega, a Miami police spokesman. By mid-afternoon, roads in the area remained shut down.
A person in the truck died, and the two officers were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in stable condition, Vega said.
