JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A woman who was critically injured Tuesday morning when she crashed into a power pole just off Baymeadows Road later died, police said.

Jacksonville police said the crash, which was near Point Meadows Drive west of I-295, was reported about 5:22 a.m.

Police said the woman, later identified as Sharlee Ashworth, 32, was the only one involved in the crash.

When officers arrived at the scene, Ashworth was trapped in the vehicle and had to be pulled out by firefighters.

She was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries and died, police said.

The damage to the pole caused a power outage nearby, officers said.

Ashworth was the 105th person killed in a traffic crash in Jacksonville this year, according to the Sheriff's Office.
