The Florida Turnpike has reopened in Boca Raton as of 7:30 Friday morning.

FHP says the deadly wreck happened about one mile south of Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach at 2 a.m. and involved two vehicles.

According to FHP, a 25-year-old driver was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of the turnpike when a 45-year-old driver collided head-on with the offending vehicle. Both drivers died, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

The on-ramp is closed in Boca Raton to the Florida’s Turnpike NB at Glades Rd.
