LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – A 24-year old woman and a 45-year-old man were killed in a single-vehicle crash in Lake County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred where Live Oak Ranch Road meets County Road 439 in the Umatilla area, troopers said.

Troopers said the woman was driving a Chevrolet Malibu north on County Road 439 when she lost control and traveled onto the east shoulder.

While the vehicle traveled onto the shoulder, it collided with a drainage ditch and several trees, became airborne and overturned, according to a crash report.

Troopers said the vehicle came to a final rest in a wooded area on the east shoulder of the road.
