Paramedics arrived to the scene of the crash that occurred Jacksonville University Campus. Report say the vehicle was driving west on Merrill Road at a high rate of speed and went through the intersection at University Boulevard North. The car did not stop at the gate but drove right through hitting a female student before crashing into a building.
Jacksonville-Fire Rescue was able to get the driver out of the vehicle. He sustained non-life threatening injuries and is recovering at a local hospital. The female student who was struck was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Officials confirm the crash remains an active investigation. The details of the individuals involved in the crash have not been released by the Police.
Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, comments on this crash: “It is very sad to see this accident happen to a woman in Jacksonville. Pedestrian accident tend to lead to more significant injuries and fatalities. Unlike a car accident that has safety systems like airbags and seat belts that can make the difference in surviving a car accident. It is important to always use crosswalks where available especially on high traffic non-residential roads. After an accident, families often have many questions about what next step to undertake. Although nothing can undo a tragic accident, an experienced attorney will help you fight for justice that your family deserves.”
