Police believe speed played a factor in a deadly crash that claimed the life of a 21-year-old man in Jacksonville Beach late Monday evening.

At approximately 11:29 p.m., the Jacksonville Beach Police Department responded to a two-vehicle traffic crash with reported injuries in the 1100 block 3rd Street North. 

JBPD says the driver of a red Ford Focus, who had not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of a Ford F150 was transported to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries. 

The crash caused a portion of 3rd Street North to be closed down for investigative purposes. The roadway is now open.
