2 killed, 4 hurt when driving stunt goes wrong

Authorities in Florida say the driver of a truck was trying to do donut stunts in an empty lot when the vehicle flipped, killing the driver and one of five other people inside.

Two of the passengers were seriously hurt and taken to a hospital. Two others had minor injuries.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 43-year-old Randall Landry of Naples was driving the truck Saturday night when it overturned.

FHP says Landry and 28-year-old Jose Castillo were thrown from the vehicle and pinned underneath. Both died at the scene.

A highway patrol report says no one was wearing a seat belt.
