JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Florida Highway Patrol reports that a  driver was killed Wednesday night in an accident on New Kings Road and Old Kings Road.

FHP says Ilayyn Fahmi Ahmad, 52 was killed while traveling northbound on US-1 in his 2012 Nissan Altima. A woman in an SUV was traveling southbound on US-1 in the left turn lane. She tried to make a left turn onto Forest Trail Road, but in doing so failed to yield the right-of-way while making a left turn. This resulted in the front of Ahmad's Nissan colliding with the front of the woman's car. 

Both drivers were transported to UF Health by the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department. The woman has serious injuries from the crash. 

FHP says charges are pending.
