JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 31-year-old woman was killed and two boys, ages 4 and 9, were hurt in a crash Wednesday night at the I-295 northbound off-ramp to Dunn Avenue, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the woman was driving an SUV west on Dunn Avenue, approaching the intersection with the ramp, and “ran a solid red light,” resulting in a collision with a sedan that was turning into the entrance ramp.

The SUV flipped and hit a pole.

The woman and two children were taken to a hospital, where the woman died from her injuries, troopers said.

According to the FHP report, a man was also in the SUV but ran from the scene on foot after the crash. Anyone with information about the crash is asked call First Coast CrimeStoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or the Florida Highway Patrol at *347.
