An accident on I-295 involving a tractor trailer and several vehicles left two people with significant injuries, officials said.
Officers with Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office responded to an accident that occurred on I-295 at Picketville. The accident involved three sedans, a SUV and a tractor trailer.
A spokesperson for Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said, a preliminary investigation suggest that a Honda CRV stopped on the interstate and the tractor trailer swerved to avoid hitting it. The tractor trailer ended up hitting the CRV and three other vehicles.
The CRV driver suffered head and leg injuries while another driver suffered leg injuries. Both drivers were taken to the hospital.
The JSO spokesperson said, the drivers were listed as alert, conscious and breathing upon leaving the scene.
