SANTA ROSA COUNTY — A motorist who ran out of gas while traveling on Interstate 10 received minor injuries when her vehicle was struck by another motorist.

Victoria Emory Browning, a 22-year-old Milton woman, was traveling on I-10 near Mile Marker 18 around 9 a.m. when she ran out of gas.

She was trying to merge into the outside lane and onto the shoulder when she was struck from behind by a vehicle driven by John Claude, a 39-year-old Pace man, according to the Florida Highway Patrol media release.

The impact pushed Browning's vehicle into the concrete barrier, forcing it to overturn in the eastbound lane of traffic.

Browning was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Claude had no injuries, the release said.

No one was charged with traffic violations for the accident.
