Pedestrian hit on Beach Blvd

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A section of Beach Boulevard is closed after a JFRD said a person was hit by a car.

JFRD tweeted about accident in the 11000 block of Beach Boulevard just before 10 p.m. Friday night.

JSO closed part of the eastbound lanes of Beach Boulevard to investigate.

An Action News Jax employee got caught in the traffic backup as JSO officers detoured traffic off Beach Boulevard near the Sonic and Bowl America, not too far from St. Johns Bluff.

JFRD says the person hit by the car was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
