Jacksonville, FL – 2-Vehicle Collision with Injuries on FL-15
Jacksonville, FL (December 18, 2019) – Around 3:44 a.m. this morning, Clay County responders assisted at the scene of a two-vehicle collision with injuries on FL-15.
The Florida Highway Patrol claimed that a semi-truck was headed south on the highway and tried to make a turn when it collided with a cargo van for unknown reasons.
The accident caused diesel fuel to spill all over the highway and then go down a storm drain in the area. The accident was so severe that it closed down northbound lanes of traffic.
Multiple injuries were reported but the extent of these injuries is not yet known.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
