Body:
Through tomorrow, commuters on South Florida highways can catch a glimpse of a digital memorial to Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez.

Fernandez, 24, and two other men were killed early Sunday morning in a boat crash off the coast of Miami.

Four billboards owned by Outfront Media are carrying the message, “We’ll miss you, Jose Fernandez. Thanks for the hope, love & faith,” a spokeswoman for the company said.

The billboards can be seen here:

• Southbound I-95 in Lake Worth, just north of 6th Avenue South.
• Northbound I-95 in West Palm Beach, just south of Blue Heron Boulevard.
• I-75 in Hialeah, heading south toward Doral and Miami.
• I-595 in Fort Lauderdale, heading west toward Weston.

Local 10 News in Miami reported that similar billboards were spotted elsewhere in Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

Officials with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission continue to investigate the crash.
