Report says a three-vehicle accident involving a tractor trailer happened at Lane Avenue resulting in a power outage for a short period of time.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, a tractor trailer and two cars were involved in an accident that caused a tractor trailer to crash into JEA’s Paxon substation at Lane Avenue and West 5th Street.
At the scene, it was reported that a small white car was damaged and in the middle of the road and the semi that had crashed into the substation.
Eyewitnesses said, the semi struck the substation after getting into a crash with the car. They said, the crash was so loud that it sounded like a bomb going off.
It was reported that the co-worker of the semi driver said the driver was on his way back to their headquarters when the crash happened and fortunately, the truck was empty or the coworker of the truck driver would be taking him to a hospital to get checked out.
There’s no word yet on the extent of the damage or whether anyone in the white car was injured.
On the extent of the power outage, the JEA outage map showed more than 780 customers were without power in the area. Power has been restored for hundreds of customers shortly after the crash.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident and the other driver has left the scene of the crash, you need to act quickly. It is best if you can get the names and phone numbers of any witnesses along with a vehicle description. Contact the police immediately and file a police report. Take photos of the crash scene and the damage to your vehicle or property. Contact any businesses or homes in the area that may have video surveillance of what occurred and the vehicle that fled. All of this will assist the police in locating the hit and run driver. Finally you should contact a car accident attorney to help guide you through this difficult process.”
