One killed in a fatal semi-truck accident in Nocatee

A fatal car accident in Nocatee ended with the death of an 84-year-old man from St. Johns Tuesday, February 21 on the U.S. 1 expressway at N. Stratton Road.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers report that the tragedy occurred when a semi-truck, attempting to turn left, was hit by a southbound car driving directly under the semi’s trailer. The 84-year-old car driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Often, this type of accident is called a side underride crash.

The early morning traffic accident left all southbound lanes of U.S. 1 blocked for several hours. The semi-driver, a 27-year-old man from Orange Park, did not suffer any injuries. 

Initial investigation indicates that both drivers were wearing seat belts at the time of the collision. Police are investigating the incident and will release more details in due course.

We extend our heartfelt condolences to the deceased’s family members during this difficult time.

Semi-truck accident in Nocatee proves fatal

Careless and negligent mistakes are the leading cause of road accidents. While such car-semi crashes are rare, this one had a tragic outcome. Anyone who has driven alongside a tractor-trailer knows they’re different. In an accident with a truck, car occupants are significantly more likely to suffer serious injuries or death. 

The insurance industry depends on policyholders contacting them as soon as possible following an accident. As experienced accident attorneys, we will recommend you immediately get medical attention and speak with a Florida accident attorney before you contact the insurer to ensure your legal rights are protected.
