2 dead after pickup truck hits SUV in central Florida


DELEON SPRINGS, Florida — Two people are dead following a crash in central Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the driver and passenger in a sports utility vehicle died Tuesday after a pickup truck hit their vehicle and it over turned. Authorities haven't been able to determine whether 23-year-old Jessica Marcus or 27-year-old Jaime Desmaris was driving because both were ejected. Both died at the scene.

Troopers say 66-year-old James Hanis suffered serious injuries.

The crash remains under investigation.
