Jacksonville's Beach Boulevard was the scene of a major accident yesterday that claimed the life of a teen. When a major road closes on a busy day our heart aches because we know the accident ahead was a serious one. Sadly yesterday the intersection of St Johns Bluff road and Beach Blvd was backed up due to a deadly accident. According the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office an SUV driven by a 39 year old woman ran a red light at high speeds her vehicle went over the concrete median on Beach Blvd. striking a Honda, a tanker truck and a Lexus. The driver of the SUV was hospitalized with serious injuries. The driver of the Honda Denny Grahovic was transported to the hospital where he died later in the day from injuries sustained in the accident. Denny Grahovic was only 18; his passenger a 16 year old female was also seriously injured. The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is investigating the cause of this accident speed is one factor that has been identified already.
