The family of a 21-year-old woman killed in a half-truck crash on Interstate 95 in Jacksonville mourns her loss.
Hannah Krajowski was behind the wheel of a Kia Optima when she was hit by half of a truck heading south on I-95 when she lost control at around 5:45 PM.
Now, the death of Krajewski and a 23-year-old passenger raises questions about safety along this route, which is currently still under construction.
Soldiers said the truck driver was spinning a curve on the I-95 near Lim Turner Road off the ramp when he veered into a concrete barricade and hit a Kia, causing the two cars to collide with a nearby guardrail.
Krajowski and her passenger died of their wounds. The 65-year-old truck driver was unhurt.
“A [half-truck] driver took my child away from us,” wrote Amanda, Krajowski’s older sister, in a Facebook post. “I know I’m not supposed to ask God, but I have questions, God.”
Contacted by Krajewski on Wednesday, she confirmed that her sister was one of two people killed in the wreckage on Tuesday, but did not want the contents of her Facebook post to be clarified.
Based on preliminary details published by Florida Highway Patrol, it is not clear what caused the truck driver to lose control of the vehicle prior to collision.
However, some social media users expected roadworks in the area to have a role.
One user said, “The rerouting is terrible here, and I’m trying to avoid all costs.” “It’s very slippery and throws cars out every time I’m in this place … I’ve been saying this needs to be fixed for years.”
