Woman, 69, dies 5 days after I-95 crash
ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – A 69-year-old Jacksonville woman injured in a crash last Thursday on Interstate 95 in St. Johns County has died, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
State troopers said Dorothy McQuaig died Tuesday morning at UF Health Jacksonville.
McQuaig was a passenger in an SUV heading northbound in the left lane of I-95 during hard rainfall about 12:50 p.m.
Troopers said the driver, 36-year-old Robert McQuaig, lost control of the vehicle and began to hydroplane into the center lane. The right rear tire and quarter panel struck the left front tire of a car in the center lane, and the SUV spun around the front of the car and off onto the grass shoulder.
The SUV then struck a tree, spun counterclockwise and stopped in the woods.
Robert McQuaig was taken to UF Health Jacksonville with serious injuries.
Two children in the backseat suffered only minor injuries.
