ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A shed fell off a trailer and landed on a car after a pickup truck crashed into the semi-truck that was hauling it, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said the pickup truck and the semi were both traveling south on State Road 417 near University Boulevard Monday at about 7:35 a.m. when the pickup truck driver went to change lanes and ended up hitting the right side of the semi.

The impact of the crash caused one of the sheds that was being hauled on the semi’s trailer to come loose and fall on the front portion of a sedan driven by a 38-year-old Maitland woman, records show.

She was taken to an area hospital to be treated for minor injuries, according to FHP.

The 27-year-old Orlando man driving the pickup truck and the 40-year-old DeLand man driving the semi-truck were not injured.

Troopers said the pickup truck driver received a ticket for careless driving.

The shed was later moved to the shoulder, but traffic remained slow in the area.
