NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. -- The victim of a fatal crash in Nassau County early Wednesday have been identified.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, the crash happened around 5:45 a.m. near Callahan on County Road 108, which is known locally as River Road.
Mark Estell, 39, of St. George, Georgia, was traveling eastbound and negotiating a right hand curve when his 2006 Nissan Sentra crossed the double yellow line, FHP said in a media release.
The release also explained that the Sentra then collided with the left rear tires of an empty trailer being pulled by a semi truck traveling westbound.
The driver of the semi faces charges for driving too fast for the conditions, according to FHP. He was not injured.
The Sentra came to a final rest in the eastbound travel lane while the semi stopped on the shoulder of the westbound lane.
Nassau County Fire & Rescue Department used special equipment to remove Estell's body from his badly damaged vehicle. He was pronounced dead on scene.
FHP reported the investigation into the crash is ongoing and pending blood results from both drivers.
