LAKE COUNTY, Fla. -

Two people were killed in a car wreck that occurred near State Road 50 and Lee Road in Lake County on Monday.

A 37-year-old Orlando woman, Yuan Yao, was driving east on SR 50 when her tire separated, according to Florida Highway Patrol. Troopers said she then over-corrected while driving into the grass median, causing her vehicle to strike the left side of a truck driven by 60-year-old Mark Miller from Nobleton.

Both the woman and Miller were killed.

A third vehicle was involved in the wreck, but the driver sustained only minor injuries.

Troopers are still investigating the wreck.
