The two passengers, a 35-year-old Christmas man and a 59-year-old Live Oak woman, both suffered minor injuries.

FHP did not estimate the speed the UTV was traveling at the time of the accident, or what may have cause the vehicle to overturn, but it did report that none of the three individuals was wearing a seatbelt.
