A 14-year-old boy was ejected from a car in an accident on Interstate 95 north, near the Hillsboro Boulevard exit on Sunday night.
The northbound lanes were temporarily closed while the teen was taken by helicopter to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale. A spokesman for Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue says the child sustained “serious but not life threatening” injuries to his back when the car rolled over.
