Traffic was backed up for miles Sunday morning following two crashes on I-95, one of which involved a Hollywood police officer, authorities report.

 

The first accident occurred just after 7:30 a.m. on northbound I-95 between the Stirling Road and the Griffin Road exits, resulting in a black SUV rolling over, the Hollywood Police Department said. 

 

One patient was taken to an area trauma center as a result of that crash. 

 

A Hollywood police officer crashed a patrol vehicle on the southbound portion of I-95 while responding to the first crash, police said. 

 

Both crashes are being investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol.
