JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 31-year-old man was killed early Monday morning when his car left Interstate 95 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, went into the east shoulder and struck a traffic sign and a tree, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

That crash happened at 2:20 a.m., but traffic in the northbound lanes was congested overnight and there was a secondary accident at 5:45 a.m.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is investigating the second crash at about the same location that extended the northbound lane closures until about 7 a.m. JSO has not said if there were any injuries that crash or how many cars were involved.
