NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A Georgia man was ticketed for careless driving after he crashed his truck into the back of a car on Interstate 95 on Tuesday, police said.

Wayne Leroy Smith, 48, also was cited for failing to show proof of insurance, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash happened just after 7:20 p.m., on the northbound side of the interstate, just north of U.S. 17 in Nassau County, police said.

Smith, behind the wheel of a 1999 Dodge Ram, ran into the back of a 2015 Chevy Impala driven by a 31-year-old Tampa woman. Neither driver was hurt, and neither had any passengers at the time.

Both were in the center lane of I-95 at the time of the wreck, police said. The Impala sustained minor damage.
