A police officer was seriously injured in a crash on Jacksonville's Northside while on duty. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper, A. Jordan was assisting in a lane closure on interstate I-95 close to the Golfair exit when the crash occurred. Sunday evening around 9:30 p.m. a Black Chevrolet Silverado was traveling northbound on I-95 when the vehicle crashed into the back of the patrol car. The lane closure was clearly marked. A. Jordan was in a marked Police vehicle with emergency lighting activated. The police officer and the driver of the Silverado truck were transported to UF Health with serious injuries. Sadly, this situation sounds like a distracted driver situation. Distracted driving takes on many forms from DUI, texting, sleep deprivation, a cellphone conversation or even an emergency situation with a driver's health. All but one of these situations is preventable by the driver. According to the Florida Highway Patrol the crash is under investigation and charges are pending against the driver of the Silverado. Questions remain as to why the driver of the Silverado failed to see the lane closure and the patrol cars. We are grateful for the service police officers provide for our community and their willingness to put their personal safety on the line to serve. We wish officer Jordan a speedy recovery.
