A 17-year-old girl died early Tuesday morning after a minivan left a Southside road and crashed into the bedroom of a home where she was sleeping.
Police identified the girl as JaNay Jackson. Channel 4 has learned that she was an honor student beginning her senior year at Wolfson High School.
The driver of the van, an adult man, was injured and hospitalized at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center. Channel 4 was told the man, whose name has not been released, was treated and released and that charges are pending.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said the van was going north on Barnes Road about 3 a.m. when it left the road and slammed into the home in the 5500 block of Kennerly Road.
Detectives said it doesn't appear the driver attempted to stop at the stop sign. Police are investigating to see if speed or alcohol played a factor in the crash.
Jackson's family said the driver of the van said nothing to them after the crash and just seemed to be "out of it."
