On Friday, April 2, six people died in a three car accident on U.S. Highway 1, north of Callahan, Florida. Callahan is approximately 20 miles north of Jacksonville, Florida. Another person suffered personal injuries.
One of the victims was taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, where she died. All of the victims were traveling in the same vehicle.
Witnesses said a Chevrolet Camaro was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed and attempted to pass the vehicle the victims were riding in. Apparently, the Camaro sideswiped the victims’ car, causing the car to lose control. Both vehicles then crossed the median into oncoming traffic where the victims’ car was struck by a pickup truck.
