A UF student died in a car crash Sunday while returning from the Thanksgiving break.

Jade Guzzo, 20, was killed when the car she was driving flipped several times, according to a Florida Highway Patrol police report.

Guzzo was driving northbound through Osceola County on Florida's Turnpike when her Isuzu Rodeo drifted off the road. The vehicle flipped when Guzzo over-corrected to get back on the road, according to the report.

She was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.

Twenty-year-old Leah Thomas was riding with her at the time. Thomas was taken to a hospital in Orlando to be treated for serious injuries.

Guzzo was an architecture major from Delray Beach.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The crash was still under investigation as of Monday.
