JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A crash on the exit ramp from I-295 from UNF
Drive resulted in the deaths of two passengers Sunday evening.
According to Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Dylan Bryan, the driver of the 2001 Nissan Maxima lost control of the vehicle and ran off the road.
The front of the vehicle hit a road sign pole and that caused the vehicle to flip over and catch fire, Bryan said.
The two occupants of the vehicle were not able to get out of the vehicle and died inside.
Dylan said investigators believe speed was a possible factor.
The medical examiner has been dispatched to the scene.
The right lane of I-295 remains blocked in the area of the crash.
