Two Florida sheriff's deputies were hospitalized Saturday after they were hit by a car during a funeral procession for a victim of last weekend's terror attack in Orlando, the police said.
The Florida Highway Patrol confirmed to CBS News that a female driver pulled into the procession and struck two Osceola County motorcycle deputies in Kissimmee.
Both deputies were in stable condition and recovering at a hospital, the sheriff's office said. No information was available on their injuries.
The woman stayed at the scene, the highway patrol said. She was identified as Ivonne Morales, 44, of Kissimmee.

The sheriff's office told CBS News it has no reason to believe the collision was intentional. The highway patrol ticketed Morales for failing to yield for a funeral procession.
The procession was for Jean Mendez, one of the 49 victims of Sunday morning's shooting at the Pulse nightclub.
