A fatal accident on SR 200/A1A in Yulee had westbound lanes of the road closed for hours Wednesday night as members of the Florida Highway Patrol and Nassau County Fire and Rescue investigated the crash. 

According to the FHP a vehicle, driven by 44-year-old Theodore Ferguson, was in the westbound, right lane of SR 200/A1A  and approaching Courtney Isle Way. While a second vehicle, driven by 72-year-old Patricia Lojewski, was attempting to cross over the westbound lanes to reach the median from Courtney Isle Way.
