The accident took place in the early evening close to Pineridge Road on County Road 108. Florida Highway Patrol and News 4 Jax report that at approximately 5 p.m., a Chevrolet Camaro was headed westbound on the highway, when the driver somehow lost control of the vehicle. Troopers say the Chevy crossed over the centerline of the roadway and entered the eastbound lanes of travel.
Upon entering the eastbound lanes, the Chevy crashed head-on into a Lincoln Town Car that had been headed east on County Road 108. Troopers did not immediately say what circumstances might have caused the accident. They were not reported to have provided any information about what caused the Chevy to leave its lane and cross into opposite-bound traffic.
News 4 Jax reports that the driver of the Lincoln Town Car was tragically killed in the crash. He was identified as a 54-year-old man from Hilliard, Florida.
