  MIAMI (AP) _ Two drivers have lost their lives in a head-on crash on the Tamiami Trail, about 11 miles west of the Miccosukee gaming facility and hotel.

 

  The Florida Highway PatroL says the crash caused so much damage that the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Silverado were hard to recognize.

 

  Neither vehicle carried passengers. The names of the victims have not yet been released. 

 

  Both directions of the Tamiami Trail have been shut down since the 7:17 a.m. crash, causing long backups. Officials say the road traversing the Everglades should reopen by noon.

 

  Further details weren't immediately available.
