Driver killed in Roosevelt crash identified

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has released the name of a driver killed in a fatal crash Friday near FSCJ's Kent campus.

Miriam Cabezas, 37, was killed when her car was struck by an SUV shortly after 7:15 Friday morning, according to a news release from Jacksonville Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Melissa Bujeda.

Cabezas was the only person in her car as she drove east on Plymouth Street.  Plymouth runs perpendicular to Roosevelt Boulevard.

Cabezas followed a school bus, Bujeda said, through the intersection of Plymouth Street and Roosevelt Boulevard.  Cabezas was making a left turn to travel northbound on Roosevelt.

As she passed through the intersection, an SUV traveling south on Roosevelt struck her car from the side.

Bujeda said witnesses told police the northbound and southbound lanes both had green lights as the school bus and Cabeza entered the intersection.

Cabeza was pronounced dead at the scene.  Bujeda said she was wearing a seatbelt.
