One Dead, Two Injured in South Jacksonville Auto Crash
The car accident happened at about 8:30 p.m., when a van T-boned a vehicle that was traveling on Old Kings Road. The passenger of the vehicle died at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center.
As Jacksonville accident attorneys, we see "T-bone" car accidents quite frequently. Often they result from one car attempting to turn left across oncoming traffic. Given that it was the passenger side of the car that was T-boned in this instance, it very well could have been a left turn scenario.
The difficulty posed by a left turn accident is that the driver with the right of way, the one going straight, often has little or no warning that the other car is going to turn across his or her lane of travel. These types of car collisions typically result in severe impacts and serious personal injuries.
