Man dies after crashing car into security barriers at Navy base in Florida

Recommended Posts

A man died Thursday morning at the front gate of Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla., after crashing his car into security barriers deployed by base guards, according to state police.

The man, who has not been identified, was driving a blue Nissan Altima when he attempted to enter the base. Police believe he was fleeing the scene of another accident at about 6:30 a.m. after hitting a car at an intersection about three miles from the Birmingham Gate of the base, Florida State Police Sgt. Dylan Bryan said. After the first crash, the driver of the Altima turned onto Birmingham Avenue where his car sideswiped a white Chevy Tahoe and then proceeded through the gate, attempting to enter the base without authorization.
