Palm Beach County multi-vehicle crash, deputy-involved shooting close I-95

A spokeswoman for the Palm Beach County sheriff's office did not immediately reply to requests for information on the incident.

"Cars were running off the road and so accidents were occurring", he said of the scene on I-95 in Lantana.

Bradshaw said that a Florida Highway Patrol trooper first tried to Tase the suspect but, that the deputy feared for their lives. No other details about that shooting were released.

They rushed the Rogue and the deputy killed the driver. He said one vehicle caught fire.

He added that the suspect's actions constituted "enough to let the deputy know what he needed to do".

The suspect shot a woman Wednesday in the parking lot of a Lake Worth shopping center and took her in her vehicle, fleeing the scene, reports CBS affiliate WPEC.

The unidentified woman, who was shot in Lake Worth, was also in the auto dead.

"The sheriff's office is handling the original homicide".

Northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Lake Worth were closed for the day Wednesday morning as detectives investigate an officer-involved shooting on the highway and two fatalities in crashes among multiple cars, according to county officials.

Albert Borroto said there were six to eight vehicles involved in a crash in the northbound lanes. "We are handling the crime scene", he said. There were two deceased people among the wrecks, he said.

Drivers should avoid the expressway north and should also stay away from Dixie Highway northbound because of a shooting at a store at 1600 S. Dixie Hwy., just north of Lantana. Those lanes have since reopened.
