JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – A 26-year-old woman was killed Tuesday night in a single-car crash at the intersection of J. Turner Butler Boulevard and 3rd Street South, according to the Jacksonville Beach Police Department.

Police said it appeared Erica Kelly was entering the ramp to JTB when she lost control of her car, then overcorrected, which caused the vehicle to slide off the road and flip onto the driver's side.

Jacksonville Beach Fire Department responded, but found the driver was dead.

Police said Kelly was partially ejected and it appeared Kelly was not wearing a seat belt.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
