A 28-year-old woman was killed in a crash that closed the northbound lanes of University Boulevard at Commerce Street early Saturday morning.

Police say Jessica Deponte was driving a white Jeep Cherokee just before 7 a.m. and for unknown reasons, crossed over Arlington Road and hit a concrete pole head on. She was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The roads were closed for a few hours as police investigated and cleared the crash.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says the investigation is ongoing.
