CLERMONT, Fla. – Three people were killed early Friday in a crash that involved an asphalt truck in Lake County, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The triple fatal wreck happened around 5:35 a.m. on State Road 33 at Bakers Lane in Clermont.

According to a crash report, a Chevrolet Silverado traveling south on SR-33 entered the northbound lane and hit the front left of a semitruck, causing the semi to overturn.

The pickup then hit an asphalt truck that was traveling behind the semi. Troopers said the impact caused the asphalt truck to run off the road and crash into trees before overturning.
