MIDDLEBURG, Fla. -- One person was killed in a car crash Tuesday afternoon.

Florida Highway Patrol reports that 40-year-old Janell Ann Hutchinson was traveling southbound on Blanding Blvd. in the left lane when her vehicle came in contact with a garbage truck owned by Advanced Disposal. 

The garbage truck was traveling on Burroughs Road approaching the intersection of Blanding Blvd. The driver of the truck made a right turn onto southbound Blanding Blvd. As the driver of the garbage truck prepared to make a u-turn, the truck pulled into the left lane, into the path of Hutchinson. 

As a result, Hutchinson hit the rear of the garbage truck.

The crash happened around 1 p.m. Tuesday. 

FHP said Hutchinson was airlifted to Orange Park Medical Center where she later died from her injuries.

The driver and the passenger of the garbage truck were not injured in this crash.

The southbound lanes of Blanding Blvd. were blocked for approximately 3 hours.

Police said charges are pending until further investigation.
