A major head-on crash on the 7-mile bridge at mile marker 41 around 12:00 p.m. today closed traffic in both lanes for about an hour (but is now open). Multiple injuries were reported when a Fort Mustang and an SUV collided. Three people were loaded on both Trauma Star helicopters and were airlifted to Miami. Five people total were reported injured.

A second crash shortly afterward involving a pedestrian temporarily closed northbound U.S. 1 lanes at Mile Marker 95.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating both incidents.

Amber’s most unusual project involved hitchhiking on small airplanes to 49 states, during which time she spent two years on the road, or rather, “on the skyways.” She is currently working on a book that documents the unusual journey and provides insight into the aviation community. Before getting into travel writing, Amber worked for an activist, investigative newspaper in London, so joining forces with the Blue Paper allows her to go back to her muckraking roots. She has a bachelor's degree in journalism.
