Multiple vehicles crashed on I-295 near Duval Road on Jacksonville’s Northside Monday. Because of the car accident, one person was rushed to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center with life-threatening personal injuries.
One vehicle was heading northbound when it struck a ladder in the roadway and veered across the median, striking two southbound vehicles. One of the southbound vehicles was struck head-on.
A similar incident ocurred several years ago on the Buckman Bridge here in Jacksonville, when a ladder fell from a truck. As a result of the ladder in the roadway, there was a serious vehicle collision. One person was killed in that accident. A wrongful death lawsuit against the owner of the vehicle that dropped the ladder resulted in a significant recovery for the family of the deceased person.
