JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A 13-year-old boy was killed in a crash on U.S. 1 near Interstate 95 on Wednesday night.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a Chevy Monte Carlo, driven by 42-year-old Dylan Campbell Iszard of Jacksonville, was in the left turn lane on U.S. 1 southbound.

The Monte Carlo attempted to cross U.S. 1 to the I-95 northbound ramp and pulled out in front of a Jeep Cherokee, FHP said.

The Cherokee, driven by a 17-year-old girl from Altoona, Alabama, hit the Monte Carlo in the left lane of U.S. 1 northbound and both vehicles blocked all lanes of U.S. 1 northbound.

All the occupants of the Monte Carlo, including a 13-year-old boy and an 11-year-old boy from Jacksonville, were taken to UF Health Jacksonville with serious injuries. The 13-year-old boy, identified by FHP as Dylan Iszard, died at the hospital as a result of his injuries.

The 17-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy, who was also in the Jeep Cherokee, were taken to UF Health with minor injuries.
