Two Lake City women had just minor injuries after their car overturned several times when the driver ran off the road to avoid hitting a trailer early Friday morning in Suwannee County.

Katrina D. Hill, 39, and Markina K. Edwards, 23, were treated for injuries at Shands Hospital at Live Oak, according to a Florida Highway Patrol media release.

The accident occurred at 2:32 a.m. on U.S. 90 about one mile west of Live Oak. Hill was eastbound on U.S. 90 while Morris Oubre, 61, of Grand Prairie, Texas, was westbound turning left in a driveway.

FHP reported that Oubre, who was hauling a trailer attached to his 1994 Dodge Dakota pickup truck, violated Hill’s right of way.

Hill swerved to the right to avoid the trailer and overturned about three times. Her 2004 GMC Envoy ended up on its left side.

Both women were wearing the seat belts. FHP reported their injuries as minor.

Oubre was charged with violating the right of way.
