LOOK: People turn to social media after traffic chaos, shootings on I-95 


Traffic started building on Interstate 95 early this morning after a fatal shooting near Yamato Road in Boca Raton. 

People stuck in the gridlock took to social media to release their frustrations and warn others to seek other alternatives. 

The choas continued after at 9:30 a.m. when a multi-car crash and another shooting occurred on I-95 in Lantana

One person on social media described the scene where he said an SUV traveling over 100 mph was going the wrong way and it collided with another car.

In that incident, a person was shot by a Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy. 

#Deputy down in #lantana 100s of cops out here 🙏🙏🙏

Two people died in the Lantana crash on Interstate 95, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue said.

Now, all Interstate 95 northbound lanes from Lantana Road to Sixth Avenue South will be closed indefinitely.

Lanes are closed and traffic continues. It’s taking people double the time to get to places they need to be.  

Rachel Cohen told the Palm Beach Post that “it took me approximately one hour to travel from the Belvedere exit to the 10th Ave N exit.” 

As one social media user put it, today “seems like a good day to NOT drive.” 

Just when people thought they were going to catch a traffic break, there was a rollover crash near the Woolbright Road exit in Boynton Beach.
