The Florida Highway Patrol says one person was killed early Friday morning after striking the bridge support of an overpass.

Authorities say a work van went off the road and hit the bridge support of SW Citrus Boulevard, which runs over the northbound lanes of I-95 in Palm City.

The van caught fire, and the driver was trapped inside. Citrus Boulevard at MM105 is closed until Florida Transportation Officials can come out and check the bridge support.

Crews on scene say the damage to the SW Citrus Blvd. bridge support is severe, and the road has been closed in that area.

The identity of the victim has not been released.
