JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – One person was killed Monday night in a crash on Argyle Forest Boulevard, according to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department.

Lt. Mana, with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, said that at about 9:15 p.m., a Nissan pickup was heading east on Argyle, while a Ford Mustang was leaving the Popeyes parking lot. Mana said the Mustang attempted to take a left onto Argyle, and the pickup collided with the Mustang.

The driver of the pickup truck, a man in his 60s, sustained life-threatening injuries, Mana said. The driver of the Mustang, who was described as a young adult, died. A passenger in the car sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

The crash closed all lanes of the road, but they had reopened by 5 a.m.

According to News4JAX records, this is the second deadly crash at this intersection in the last two months.

In May, police said a motorcyclist was speeding on Argyle Forest Boulevard when an SUV turning out of the Popeye’s parking lot hit the motorcycle, killing the rider. No one else was seriously hurt in that crash.

Monday night’s crash was the 98th traffic fatality in Duval County this year.
