JACKSON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - One person is dead after being thrown from her car in Jackson County Saturday.

Florida Highway Patrol Troopers say a Honda was driving westbound in the left lane on I-10. A Nissan was also driving westbound in the right lane.

FHP officials say the Honda drifted off the road, and then overcorrected to the right, hitting the Nissan from behind. The Nissan then turned into the median and ejected the driver, Kelley Phillmon, 51, of Alford.

Phillmon was pronounced dead on scene. Three other passengers in the Nissan were seriously injured and transported to local hospitals.

Officials say several lanes on I-10 were temporarily shut down for a helicopter to take one passenger to Southeast Health.
