Two passengers in the car had non-life-threatening injuries and were also taken to the hospital.
Crews said there was a trailer on the northbound side of the road that was missing a wheel, but there was no car or witness to provide information.
The southbound lanes of I-95 in Hobe Sound were shut down for a period of time due to the incident.
