A sad day for Jacksonville after a second teen death on our roadways yesterday both teens were attended high school in the Arlington area. Derek George a 16 year old Atlantic Coast High School student suffered fatal injuries in an auto accident after his car slid off the road and struck a tree. Derek George was leaving school Thursday night after his junior varsity game when he crashed on R.G. Skinner Parkway near Baymeadows Road. Derek George was traveling North on Skinner parkway just after 8 p.m. when his Nissan left the road and hit a tree his two passengers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries. Derek George died at the scene. Teammates and friends have created a memorial at the scene leaving flowers, notes and even their own jerseys in memory of Derek George. Earlier in the day on Thursday another teen Denny Grahovic a Sandalwood student died from injuries sustained in an auto accident on Beach Blvd. In the wake of a second teen death in an auto accident in the same area of town the Duval County Public School issued a statement: "The communities of Sandalwood, Atlantic Coast High and all Duval County Public Schools are deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of its two students due to auto accidents. To support the well-being of students and faculty, specially-trained school counselors and social workers will be onsite today at both high schools, and will provide continued support as needed."
