Fatal crash closes I-95 northbound in St. Augustine

The FDOT traffic cameras also showed serious traffic backups on southbound I-95 as motorists came up on the crash scene.

Two vehicles were involved in the crash.

Troopers said Brianna Dee Knox crashed into four cars near Tampa on Tuesday afternoon, and then got out of her vehicle and started acting "erratically and disturbed".

The Highway Patrol also reported a second, separate accident on I-95 northbound at Florida 206, just south of the fatal crash scene.

All three northbound lanes remain blocked until about 1 p.m. Drivers were encouraged to use USA 1 as an alternate route and allow extra time.

The crash involves three cars and two semi-trucks.

Deputies warn that traffic was backed up for miles and drivers need to use caution once the road reopens.

Pontecorvo's death and Britton's death are the first fatalities on St. Johns County roadways this year according to information available from the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Thirty people died in crashes in 2016.
