Jacksonville Teens Die in an Auto Accident

Sixteen year old Ruben Kelsey died in a fatal crash on Jacksonville's Arlington Rd. while the younger teens in the SUV with him were hospitalized with serious injuries around 4 a.m. on Sunday. The Honda Pilot was reported stolen from a Mandarin home prior to the crash. The driver was apparently driving at a high rate of speed when they lost control trying to navigate a turn onto Rogero Rd. The vehicle crossed the median and struck a concrete wall and a large utility pole. The impact caused serious damage to the vehicle ejecting the three teens from the SUV. Rueben Kelsey was pronounced dead at the scene the other 2 occupants were only 14 years old. The 14 year olds were reported to be in critical but stable condition. Jacksonville Sherriff's Office had some difficulty identifying the 14 year olds since they were not old enough to have a driver's license. If your teens have a phone make sure they have entered emergency health data and contact information on their phone. The Florida Department of Motor Vehicles issues Florida ID cards with photos for anyone over 5 years of age. Proof of residency and identification is required more information is available at this link. The Florida ID is also a good ID for seniors that no longer drive. http://www.dmv.org/fl-florida/id-cards.php
