JACKSONVILLE, Fla.- An 18 year old male is dead and a 17 year old female injured after the car the male was driving crashed on the ramp from I-10 East to I-295 south.
The ramp is blocked while police are investigating the crash.
Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Sgt. Jocelyn Wells tells First Coast News the incident started on Pritchard Road near I-10 when a police officer saw their car swerving all over the road. The officer was trying to catch up to the teens who drove on to I-295. Their car ended up crashing off I-295 near the ramp from I-10 eastbound.
The 17 year old female was taken to UF Health to be treated for her injuries.
Wells said JSO does not know why the teens ran from officers and that the officer was not in a full pursuit.
If you need to take I-295 south from I-10, you would want to get off at Lane Avenue and go to Commonwealth to I-295.
