Both the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department and Florida Highway Patrol confirmed multiple people were taken to the hospital.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla — At least one person is dead and multiple people are injured after a deadly crash on Dunn Avenue at I-295.

The crash happened on the northbound I-295 off-ramp to Dunn Avenue. An SUV driven by a 31-year-old Sanderson woman was driving west on Dunn Avenue approaching the intersection of the I-295 northbound ramp while a sedan driven by a 59-year-old Jacksonville Beach man was turning left from the eastbound left turn lane of Dunn Avenue to the I-295 northbound entrance ramp, according to Florida Highway Patrol. 

The SUV ran a solid red light, resulting in the two vehicles colliding, the FHP report says. The SUV then overturned and crashed into a pole. The woman, along with a 4-year-old boy and a 9-year-old boy were taken to the hospital, where the driver was pronounced dead.

A man was said to have been in the SUV at the time of the crash. After the crash, the man ran away from the scene, FHP says. If anyone has information about the crash, you are asked to call First Coast Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS or call FHP at *347.

Both of the boys were treated for minor injuries, according to the FHP report. The driver of the sedan, along with two women passengers, also had minor injuries.
