ST. LUCIE COUNTY, Fla. -- A woman and child were injured Friday evening in St. Lucie County when two pickup trucks collided.
Florida Highway Patrol says a 2016 Dodge Ram truck pulling a trailer with a Lexus N300 SUV on it was parked on Okeechobee Road, west of Gentile Road, partially blocking the outside lane.
The front of a 1999 Ford Ranger driven by 41-year-old Margaret Freeman of Melbourne, Florida collided with the rear of the Dodge truck's trailer, causing the Ranger to overturn.
