Earlier last week, a fatal accident on Buckman Bridge in Jacksonville claimed the lives of four individuals and seriously injured three others. According to one local news report, the accident occurred on a Monday afternoon around two o’clock.
Evidently, an SUV was coming to a stop on the bridge when it was struck from behind by a semi-truck. The SUV caught fire soon after the initial collision. Tragically, all four people inside the SUV—including two adults and two minors—were pronounced dead at the scene.
A third vehicle was also involved in the accident. Thankfully, all occupants of that vehicle were able to make it out with non-life-threatening, although still serious, injuries. The driver of the semi-truck was also injured as a result of the accident.
