A fatal two-vehicle crash, involving an SUV and a sedan, happened at the intersection of San Juan and Cassat Avenues in the west-side Lakeshore neighborhood of Jacksonville, Florida at around 2:15 a.m. on February 27, 2022.
According to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, at the time of the crash, when the two hit each other at the intersection, the SUV was moving westbound on San Juan Avenue and the sedan was moving southbound on Cassat Avenue.
The collision caused the SUV to hit the convenience store on the southwest corner of the intersection. A surveillance camera from the convenience store revealed that the two automobiles collided in the intersection and the SUV was forced into the ice merchandiser, leaving glass shattered, windows broken, and lots of debris on the nearby sidewalk.
The SUV driver was declared dead at the accident scene, and the two sedan passengers were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Due to the incident, the roads in that area remained closed for around five hours. The accident is under investigation.
If any nearby person or vehicle were injured/damaged as a result of the driver’s negligence, there would likely be a valid personal injury claim.
