JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – A 14-year-old girl from Jacksonville died in a crash Monday night that forced all southbound lanes of I-95 at Golfair Boulevard to temporarily close, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the report, about 9 p.m. Monday, a sedan occupied by a 17-year-old boy and 14-year-old girl was stopped in the center lane on I-95 south. A 54-year-old woman driving an SUV was traveling south in the center lane when the SUV collided with the rear of the sedan.
The collision caused the sedan to catch on fire and spun it into the right lane. The SUV, however, was pushed onto the left shoulder.
The 14-year-old passenger died at the scene. The driver of the sedan suffered serious injuries. The driver of the SUV had minor injuries.
All occupants in both cars were wearing seat belts at the time, according to FHP.
