SAINT AUGUSTINE,Fla – A 23-year-old St. Augustine woman is dead after a crash on U.S. 1 and Regalo Road in St. Johns County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

FHP said the crash happened after 11:15 p.m. Tuesday.

FHP said two vehicles were traveling north when a 39-year-old woman driving a semi-truck attempted to make a wide U-turn at the intersection of Regalo Road but ended up blocking the left and right lanes.

The woman who died was driving behind the truck and swerved to try and avoid the semi, but hit the rear of the trailer. Her sedan spun out and ended up on the right shoulder facing south.

Troopers said both women were wearing a seat belt.
