A person is dead and two are in the hospital Thursday night after a car struck a tree in the Southside of Jacksonville, authorities say.

The crash, which happened around 8 p.m., was on R.G. Skinner Parkway near Baymeadows Road and Interstate 295.

Polcie say the crash happened on a road that services Celebration Church and Atlantic Coast High School. Despite there being two events at Atlantic Coast Thursday night, authorities can't say for certain at this time the crash had any relation to them.
