Florida Highway Patrol officials confirmed the death of a 73-year-old man who was killed in a car crash involving a semi-truck on Friday morning in Green Cove Springs.
State Troopers were called at the scene of the crash that took place near Shands Bridge, just south of State Road 16.
Reports state that Robert Patterson,55, was driving his semi-truck when he crashed into a Dodge pickup truck that is driven by 73-year-old, Toby Adair.

Adair was pronounced dead at the scene and no charges have been filed.
