JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A suspected case of road rage killed a Jacksonville man more than a year ago. Now Ana Jiminez is in custody and faces murder charges.
The crash happened back in April 2019 on US-17 next to the I-295 Beltway.
According to the report, Jiminez is accused of slamming her car in the rear end of the victim’s car, which caused a rollover crash. At least four other vehicles were also hit as a result.
Jiminez was arrested for murder in the 2nd degree and vehicular homicide on Wednesday. 61-year-old James Robinson died as a result of the crash.
Jiminez was allegedly rear-ended by the victim prior to the crash and is accused of chasing him on the road despite being told by first responders to pull over.
Action News Jax Law and Safety Expert Dale Carson said the charges come with up to 15 years in custody.
Reporter Robert Grant asked Carson why it took so long for the Florida Highway Patrol to arrest the suspect on the charges.
“It takes a long time for these cases to be concluded by the state of Florida because there’s a lot of investigation that has to go into it.”
Jiminez also faces eight charges of reckless driving.
