JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 51-year-old Orange Park man was killed Monday in a crash just east of Baldwin, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash was reported just after 6 p.m. on U.S. 90 near Winn-Dixie Parkway.

Troopers said Ronald Pugh was driving his tractor-trailer east on U.S. 90 toward Winn-Dixie Parkway and left the road for unknown reasons. The semi went into a ditch, then into the woods lining the road and hit several trees.

Pugh died at the scene.

Troopers are still investigating the crash.
