A 27-year-old man of Orange Park, Florida, sustained serious personal injuries in a six-vehicle crash in Fleming Island, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. According to news reports, the man was traveling in the wrong direction on U.S. 17 before the accident occurred. Per the Florida Highway Patrol Press Release, Christopher Luke Paquette was traveling North just before 11 p.m. and stopped to make a left-hand turn into Eagle Harbor Parkway. However, instead of turning, Paquette drove into the southbound lanes on U.S. 17 and proceeded to travel north toward oncoming traffic. Paquette’s truck eventually collided with 3 vehicles. The third collision into a Chevy Lumina sent the Lumina spinning and into another southbound car, while the truck driven by Paquette made its final collision into a Kia Rio. Two people were hospitalized as a result of the collision, Paquette and a passenger in the Kia Rio. Paquette was transported to Orange Park Medical Center. The passenger of the Kia Rio, identified as 16-year-old Kyle Jesperson of Fleming Island, was transported to Shands Jacksonville where she was later listed in stable condition.
