3 car wreck on Butler Blvd. at Southside Blvd.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. --  A three car crash eastbound on Butler Boulevard at the Southside Boulevard exit on Friday afternoon resulted in one vehicle over turning.

The crash happened just after 1 p.m. Friday.  Four people were involved in the crash, riding in the three separate vehicles.  A white GMC Jimmy, a black Honda Accord, and a burnt-orange Honda Fit.   

Jimmy Lanave, who was driving the Honda Fit, spoke to First Coast News.

"The white GMC lost control and went bumper first towards the median, colliding with the black car....I was able to avoid the white GMC, but could not stop in time to avoid hitting the black car." 

When asked if he was injured, Lanave said that he was just sore, but would probably go the hospital.

The driver of the GMC, which overturned during the crash, was able to exit the vehicle, according to Lanave, and was being interviewed by Florida Highway Patrol when First Coast News arrived.

First Coast News will continue to follow this story and will provide updates as official police reports are distributed.
