ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol says a 27-year-old woman died Tuesday morning when she swerved to avoid a slower vehicle that pulled onto U.S. 1 and her pickup truck overturned.

According to the FHP report, Danielle Reeves was heading south just past Wildwood Drive when steered her Chevrolet Avalanche to the right to avoid the slower vehicle and went onto the shoulder of the road, then overcorrected, putting the vehicle into spin and overturn.  Troopers say she was ejected onto the road.

Reeves was transported to Flagler Hospital, where she died.

An adult man riding in the passenger seat and that man's 2-year-old son received minor injuries in the crash and were also taken to Flagler Hospital.

Troopers say no charges would be filed in the case.
