At least 2 dead in Belle Glade 3-vehicle crash

BELLE GLADE, Fla. - A three-vehicle crash involving a car and two semis Thursday morning in Belle Glade has killed at least two people.

The wreck was reported around 4 a.m. at 38000 State Road 80 near Sugar House Road.

One of the people killed was a driver of a semi. The other person killed was driving the car.

A third person, who is in critical condition, was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center by medical helicopter.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a car was crossing the intersection when it was hit by one of the tractor-trailers, pushing it into the median.  Shortly afterward, the car was hit by another tractor-trailer, which caught on fire.

Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Teri Barbera said area roads will be shut down "for quite awhile."

Drivers should take County Road 880 as an alternate route.
