A man is dead more than two weeks after the fuel tanker he was in flipped on Interstate 95 near Hypoluxo Road, the Florida Highway Patrol said. 

Adrian Alonso, 36, of Hiealeah died Sept. 3 at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami from injuries sustained in the Aug. 18 crash in the northbound lanes of I-95, authorities said.

A witness told investigators that a driver cut in front of the tractor-trailer that Theodore F. Redondo was driving shortly after 3 p.m. The 59-year-old driver from Margate tried to avoid the vehicle but lost control of the tractor-trailer and flipped it on its right side. 

FHP records do not list any information about the vehicle that reportedly cut in front of the tractor-trailer. Authorities said charges are pending, based on what their investigation determines. 

Both Alonso and Redondo were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. Neither was under the influence of alcohol, records state. Records indicate Redondo was not injured in the crash. 

The wreck closed traffic on I-95 for hours as rescue crews cleaned up “hazardous material” spilled from the fuel tanker.
