The driver and passenger of a pickup truck were killed Thursday morning after crashing with a log truck on US 301 in Bradford County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The pickup truck lodged under the log truck’s trailer, FHP said.

The pickup truck’s driver and passenger were pronounced dead on scene.
