A crash involving several cars, including a Miami-Dade police cruiser, has shut down lanes and is causing heavy delays on the Palmetto Expressway during Friday’s morning rush hour.

The crash on State Road 826 has closed three southbound lanes at Northwest 25th Street. The express lanes are also shut down, causing delays all the way to the Big Curve, according to local TV news reports.

Miami-Dade police say one of their officers was on their way to work when she was rear-ended, which caused a chain reaction of crashes.

Police said no one was hurt.

Drivers should leave their homes earlier to make up for possible delays or seek an alternate route.

This bulletin will be updated.
