NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A Georgia man is dead after an accident about 10 p.m. Friday night on Interstate-95 just before the Florida-Georgia border, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

A 41-year-old man driving an SUV in the far right lane at mile marker 381, just south of the Florida-Georgia line, came to stop in a northbound lane. That’s when a second vehicle, driven by a 37-year-old man with a 59-year-old passenger inside, crashed into the stopped car.

Both cars ended up crashing into the emergency guard rail multiple times.

The Folkston driver of the SUV died. The second car’s driver and passenger, both from Canada, sustained minor injuries.

The FHP says it’s unclear at this time why the SUV came to an abrupt stop on the highway.
