Truck Dangles Over Elevated Ramp After Deadly Crash

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (February 6, 2013)--Rescue crews in Florida used an elevated ladder to reach a bakery truck left dangling precariously over the edge of an elevated overpass ramp after a deadly crash.

Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Fire Rescue spokesman Matt Little said one passenger died when the truck crashed early Wednesday on the ramp leading from a state road to Interstate 95.

The truck, bearing a sign for a Miami bakery, came to rest halfway off the ramp with its front end crumpled into a pillar.

Rescue crews worked for hours to remove the passenger.

A crane was later used to pull the truck off the side of ramp.

The driver, whose condition wasn't immediately available, was taken to a hospital.

The crash backed up traffic on both routes during the morning rush hour.
