The Florida Highway Patrol said a second person has died in a crash on I-10 in Jacksonville.
According to the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, the crash occurred on I-10 eastbound between the Chaffee Road and Hammond Boulevard exits.
A 1999 Honda Civic was driving eastbound in the outside travel lane ahead of a 2005 Ford F-250 pickup truck. In a report by the Florida Highway Patrol, the truck was driven by a 16 year old boy. The Ford rear ended the Honda. Both vehicles continued across the eastbound lanes and collided with a guardrail on the left shoulder.
The Honda passengers, 31 year old Evelyn Lashanon Nichols and 26 year old Lance Drake, died at UF Health Jacksonville following the crash. A third passenger is at the hospital in critical condition. The driver of the truck however sustained minor injuries.
