After coming back on the roadway, the vehicle overcorrected again, resulting in it overturning and landing on its passenger side after rolling twice on the south shoulder, FHP said.

One eyewitness reported seeing two passengers being ejected from the vehicle during the crash.

Several of the passengers were transported to local hospitals, with one 18-year-old woman, who has been identified by JU as first-year player Stephanie Davis, pronounced dead at Lake City Medical Center.

FHP reports show it is unknown if the 18-year-old woman that was killed was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

All other individuals in the vehicle were wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash, as listed in the report.

JU said the team was returning from an out-of-town trip they had organized together and posted photos on the team Facebook page:
