In Jacksonville, Florida one person is dead following a semi crash. In addition, all northbound lanes of I-95 were closed at Old St. Augustine Road following the fatal chain reaction crash. Likewise, the accident happened Monday in a construction zone when the first semi truck struck a large metal chunk of debris that disabled their brakes.
Luckily that semi eventually stopped on the shoulder of the road. Another semi traveling northbound attempted to avoid the same chunk of debris, lost control of the vehicle and hit a concrete barrier. As a result that semi jackknifed, and an SUV struck the semi.
59-year-old, Charles Robert Campbell was the driver of the SUV and was killed at the scene. After the accident had taken place, a third semi rear-ended another vehicle just outside of the crash zone. The two people inside the rear-ended vehicle suffered minor injuries.
