A 58-year-old Zephyrhills woman was killed Tuesday night when the pickup truck she was driving overturned in Pasco County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers said that just before 9 p.m., the driver was headed eastbound on State Road 56 at a high rate of speed when she lost control of the truck. The driver over-corrected, causing the truck to rotate, then overturn in the median.

The driver and two passengers, a 33-year-old woman from Tampa and a 64-year-old Zephyrhills man, were ejected from the truck as it overturned. The driver died at the accident scene; both passengers suffered serious injuries. Troopers said none of the occupants were wearing seat belts.

The Highway Patrol did not identify the driver, the two passengers or the make of the truck under its interpretation of Marsy’s law, a 2018 amendment to the Florida Constitution intended to protect crime victims.
