Jacksonville Bicycle and Pedestrian Accidents Kill Three During the Holidays

Bicycle and Pedestrian accidents around the Jacksonville claimed three lives over the holidays in three separate accidents. The first actually occurred three weeks ago when Charlette Crews was crossing an intersection at Merrill road and Townsend Blvd. The light changed as she crossed the intersection a vehicle swiped Crews inflicting injuries that were initially categorized as non- life-threatening. Charlette Crews was 71 years old she died on December 30th three weeks after her accident. A pedestrian fatality on the Westside of town occurred on Normandy Blvd Saturday night around 8:00 p.m. Christina Panke attempted to cross Normandy Blvd at Granville when she was struck by a SUV. Christina Ann Panke 32 years old, died at the scene.  Saturday night Jacksonville Sherriff's Office was called to the scene of another fatality a bicyclist just before 6 p.m. at the intersection of San Mateo and Atlantic Blvd. The bicyclist John Tresca was struck by a vehicle traveling east on Atlantic Blvd. The bicyclist was transported to the hospital where he died. The accident is under investigation.  Drivers too often allow an inadequate margin of safety when passing pedestrians and bicyclists. When you go for a walk or a bike ride, you should not have to fear irresponsible drivers putting your safety at risk. Inattentive drivers at crosswalks run into pedestrians and bicyclists with terrible consequences.  Slow down and don't drive distracted. Learn More
