Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Dylan Bryan says no one on the Elizabethton Twins bus was injured in the crash that occurred about 4:25 a.m. Tuesday near Jacksonville. A second bus picked up the team and went on to Elizabethton, Tenn. The Twins are a member of the Appalachian League and open their season Thursday.

Bryan says the driver of a black Honda died. The car was traveling south in the northbound lanes on Interstate 295 when it collided head-on with the bus.

The driver was described as a man in his mid-20s. His identity was being withheld until family is notified.
