Law enforcement was issued a BOLO, or told to "be on the lookout," for a silver Dodge Charger that was being recklessly driven southbound on I-95 near State Road 207 in St. Johns County.

A state trooper tried to stop the vehicle at the St. Johns/Flagler line, but the vehicle, driven by Jacksonville resident Jacqueline Luckett, 34, wouldn’t stop. She exited I-95 onto Palm Coast Parkway and headed west, with the trooper following behind her.

Luckett then made a U-turn at Pine Lakes Parkway and headed east on Palm Coast Parkway.

As she approached Cypress Point Parkway, probably the busiest intersection in Palm Coast, still being pursued by the trooper, there were numerous vehicles stopped at the red light. Luckett failed to stop and crashed into eight vehicles.


Luckett had serious injuries, and she was transported to Halifax Hospital. Six of the other victims were Palm Coast residents. One lives in Bunnell and the other lives in New York. One victim sustained minor injuries, but the others had no injuries.

Luckett was wearing her seatbelt. Charges are pending, as is a report on whether she was under the influence of alcohol.

In addition to Luckett’s $15,000 in damages to her vehicle, the other vehicles tallied at least $28,000 in damages.
