U.S. Highway 301 was the scene of a fatal accident that killed a Jacksonville man early morning. The 33-year old driver of a passenger vehicle, for unknown reasons, veered into an approaching tractor-trailer truck.
The passenger vehicle caught fire, killing the driver. The truck driver was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. An investigation is under way to determine what caused this fatal accident. It was determined that both drivers were wearing their seat belts.
I hope the trucker consults with an experienced Florida Trucking Attorney to determine if he can be compensated for damage and injuries sustained. I also offer deep condolences to the family of the driver who was tragically killed.
