Driver Flees The Scene After Fatal Accident

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, a man was recently killed in a car accident in Jacksonville, Fl.

A black pickup truck was driving down the Interstate when it sideswiped a van and drove off without stopping to speak with the other driver. The driver of the van followed the truck so that it could give a description to the police.

According to police, the pickup truck then turned off the interstate and the driver lost control of the vehicle and hit several trees. The passenger in the truck was killed instantly in the crash, but the driver, Amber Cornelius, took off running.

The police eventually caught up with Cornelius, and she could now be facing charges of fleeing the scene of an accident causing death. The crash is still under investigation.
