A 27-year-old woman from Middleburg, Florida died after a single-vehicle crash on the Buckman Bridge Thursday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that the left and left-center southbound lanes on Interstate 295 are still blocked as of 10:25 a.m.

FHP said around 6:50 a.m., Rashelle Shiloah Kirsch was driving southbound in the outside lane. For unknown reasons, she lost control over her vehicle and traveled across all lanes and struck head-on the inside barrier wall on the bridge.

FHP is telling drivers to expect travel delays, and to use alternate routes if possible.
