FMPD said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating because of the severity and size of this crash.

FDLE is using a machine called a ‘faro’ to do the investigation. The machine does a 3D scan of the scene for reconstruction.

Police also encourage going over the Caloosahatchee Bridge to cross the river.

This is an active investigation.
