A person is useless after making an attempt to drive by a gate on the Naval Air Station in Jacksonville, Florida, Thursday morning, authorities stated.
The incident occurred at about 6:30 a.m. when the unidentified driver “tried to run the Birmingham Gate at Naval Air Station Jacksonville,” based on a press release from the air base. “Gate sentries deployed the protecting barrier which stopped the automobile from getting into the station. The driving force is deceased and has no identified navy affiliation.”
Grasp Sgt. Dylan Bryan, a spokesperson with the Florida Freeway Patrol, stated the grownup male driver was concerned in a suspected hit-and-run crash about 2.5 miles north of the Air Station earlier than he crashed into the gate. That driver fled the preliminary collision, which Bryan stated was minor, shortly earlier than reaching the gate.
The driving force was not being pursued by legislation enforcement or pedestrian drivers, Bryan stated.
The driving force died from the collision on the Air Station, “and from the collision solely,” Bryan stated. The driving force was declared useless on the scene, he stated.
WJXT of Jacksonville reported the Birmingham Gate is the southernmost entrance to the Air Station off of U.S. 17. The primary entrance is the Yorktown Gate.
The incident brought about a backup on U.S. 17, the information outlet reported.
