JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A St. Augustine man is dead after a car accident on Jacksonville's Southside.
The Florida Highway Patrol responded to Interstate 295 at Baymeadows Road about 4:40 p.m. today. Robert D. Reynolds, 45, of St. Augustine, was driving southbound on I-295 when his vehicle traveled onto the right shoulder and over the grass embankment. The vehicle then continued across the exit ramp to Baymeadows, off the paved roadway and ended up in a ditch full of water.
Reynolds was taken to Baptist South where he was pronounced dead.
FHP says they do not know why the vehicle went off the road but says alcohol was not a factor in the crash.
