Jacksonville, FL (May 17, 2019) - A 23-year-old man died in a two-car crash that occurred in Jacksonville on Friday, May 17th. The incident took place on I-95 at University Boulevard.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol report that Nicholas Reid was a passenger in a Nissan Altima being driven by a 19-year-old woman just after 1:00 am. The Altima was involved in a crash with a Dodge Avenger. Reid suffered catastrophic injuries and was later pronounced dead. Both drivers sustained only minor injuries. There is no word on what led up to the accident.
All lanes were closed around the crash scene for approximately five hours as motorists were told to find alternate routes. The crash remains under investigation at this time.
