Florida Road Rage Incident Sparks Six-Car Crash, One Man Killed

One person has been killed in a fiery crash involving six cars in Jacksonville, Florida, Action News Jax reports.

The crash took place last Thursday on Roosevelt Boulevard and the Florida Highway Patrol, as well as multiple eye-witnesses, report that it was a fit of road rage which caused the incident.

Cellphone footage shared with local news outlets shows a white Honda Civic sedan and a Chevrolet Suburban SUV collide multiple times on the Buckman Bridge. The Florida Highway Patrol believes the Suburban was the aggressor and while incidents like this rarely escalate, they did in this case.

After the two repeatedly hit each other, the Suburban suddenly veered off the road and into oncoming traffic. The Chevrolet slammed into a Dodge Durango, as well as other cars, while traveling in the wrong direction and eventually came to a rest on its side. A fire soon started and the 60-year-old male driver, James David Robinson, was killed.

The 22-year-old driver of the Honda Civic wasn’t seriously injured but a man in another car involved in the crash did suffer serious injuries.

Speaking with Action News Jax, a local resident who heard the crash said the incident shouldn’t have been so serious.

“I don’t understand the road rage … I mean, it’s really something simple. You can pull over. Or If it’s just a little tiny bump, and you’re not worried about it — you can just continue on with your day,” Madeline Palmer said.

    Looks like the aggressor in the Suburban killed himself. I like happy endings.

      FYI, dead man cannot tell his side of the story!

    Too bad both of them didn’t burn to death.

      Dude, the 22 years old female driver probably scared to death when that 60 yrs old ahole continued to ramp her smaller car. I’m just glad he put himself out of roadrage misery in a spectacular fiery crash.

        thats why she was driving behind him hitting him until finally succeeded a PIT maneuver???

  • Dude

    While the now dead Suburban driver being the aggressor isn’t completely confirmed yet at least no one unrelated to the road ragers was killed. I’m just disappointed that a 60 year old would act in such a trashy way. Though I guess a Suburban is close enough to a truck that the stereotype fits.

    Just when it seems that Canada is attempting to be more Florida than Florida, here comes Florida along to prove who’s boss.

    Sometime I love this state for its insanity but this is not one of them.

    It looks like some of Florida’s nut cases are migrating north Over the last year I’ve noticed several vehicles with Florida plates demonstrating idiotic driving in the Charleston, SC area.

  • Paul

    Sheesh Florida!! again? Well the only “good” thing is that the perp is gone to the other side to own up for his BS. Sad though that others are now living their lives scarred for a long time by his warped actions.

      You guys seem to forget just how huge Florida is and that it contains variations of rural and urban life spread throughout the state.
