Law enforcement officials say two people were injured in an accident on St. Johns Bluff Road after a head-on collision between a 2010 Toyota Corolla and a Ford SUV.
According to the Police Department, the accident happened on St. Johns Bluff Road when a 2010 Toyota Corolla and a Ford SUV crashed head-on.
The Ford SUV was reportedly heading north on St Johns Bluff Road when it struck the Corolla. Officials did not give an official statement saying why the vehicles could not avoid the collision and they say the incident is still under investigation.
EMS arrived to the scene of the accident soon after it happened to administer first aid to the injured victims in the incident. Emergency crews reported that the Corolla driver, a 22-year-old woman from Jacksonville, was trapped inside the vehicle when they arrived. The woman had to be mechanically extricated from the vehicle by the rescue crews. She reportedly suffered severe injuries and was transported to the nearest hospital.
The other driver, a 33-year-old man, was also injured in the crash and was transported to the hospital for treatment.
The Jacksonville Police Department says the incident is still under investigation and no further details were released.
Glen Levine, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “This was a serious accident that left people with serious injuries. Head-on accidents are one of the most dangerous kinds of accidents. This type of accident usually happens because of driver error, meaning they often are preventable. Sadly, the innocent victims of these crashes are rendered powerless: often, there’s nothing you can do when an oncoming vehicle is bearing down on you, except brace for impact. We hope that all involved have a speedy recovery.”
