Police reported the closure of AC Skinner Parkway in Jacksonville after an accident involving a tractor trailer and another vehicle.
Officers closed both lanes of AC Skinner Parkway, near the Baymeadows area, when a tractor trailer collided with a Honda Crosstour, a police spokesperson said. The car suffered heavy damage and appeared to be pinned underneath the truck, according to an eyewitnesses report.
The driver of the Crosstour and its two other passengers reportedly sustained varying degrees of injuries in the accident. Emergency responders extricated them from the wreck and then paramedics immediately transported them to a nearby hospital.
The 34-year-old driver of the Honda sustained life-threatening injuries, EMS said. Police have yet to release the medical condition and further details regarding the two other passengers. Authorities reported that they were all wearing their seat belts at the time of the accident.
Meanwhile, the tractor trailer driver did not receive any injuries from the crash. A police investigation into the cause of the accident is ongoing.
