Deadly crash closes part of US 90

US 90 in Baker County closed for hours after deadly crash


MACCLENNY, Fla. – The Florida Highway Patrol says U.S. 90 in Baker County remained closed for more than 11 hours after a fatal accident early Wednesday morning near Macclenny.

The deadly crash happened around 5 a.m. at U.S. 90 at Rayonier Road, east of Enterprise Boulevard East, and according to the FHP's website, all lanes were still closed at 4:30 p.m.

Troopers say a Kia driven by 26-year-old Lindsay Chance was heading east on U.S. 90 when it crossed the center line into the path of a log truck, hitting it head on.

The impact of the crash pushed the Kia and the truck into a ditch at the edge of the woods, where the Kia ended up under the truck.


The trailer of the truck then swung around and hit a second vehicle

Chance, a Lake City resident, was pronounced dead at the scene.  There were no other injuries.

The Sheriff's Office confirmed that due to the investigation, debris and a fuel spill, they expected U.S. 90 to remain closed for hours.

Interstate 10 was used as an alternate route.
