JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - The Florida Highway Patrol says the eastbound lanes of Interstate 10 are closed near the intersection with U.S. 301 due to a fatal crash.
    
The crash happened early Tuesday. Authorities say motorists are being asked to take State Road 228 or U.S. 90 as an alternative route until the highway reopens.
    
The FHP did not provide any other details.
