The FHP said a 17-year-old was driving with another passenger north on Pleasant Hill Road as another driver, 27, was traveling south on the same road.

For an unknown reason, investigators said the teen driver traveled onto the road’s shoulder.

He then overcorrected, steering the vehicle into the southbound lanes and struck the other vehicle.

The driver and passenger, both 17, died at the scene.

FHP Lt. Kim Montes said the other driver, a Kissimmee woman, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.

This crash remains under investigation.
