NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a father and son riding motorcycles were killed in a crash with an oncoming car in Central Florida.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the crash occurred late Tuesday in New Smyrna Beach.

The crash remains under investigation and charges are pending against Blankenship.
