Jacksonville Car Accident on the Buckman Bridge
A terrible auto accident on the Buckman Bridge in early March left four people dead and three others injured. The accident, which involved two sport utility vehicles and a tractor-trailer rig, occurred when an SUV slowed down with traffic and the semi-truck hit it. Four people were in the SUV, which caught on fire, subsequently killing everyone inside. The three people in the other car were taken to the hospital with injuries.
Accidents like this are horrifying for drivers who cross the bridge every day on their way to and from work. With crowded traffic, distracted drivers, and unforeseen events, driving is a necessary and usually safe way to get from point A to point B, but does carry risks.
