Troopers are searching for a pickup truck that reportedly crashed into a golf cart in Melbourne, leaving a father and son critically hurt.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the crash happened at 9 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Harlock Road and Lake Washington Road.

According to FHP, a 48-year-old Melbourne man was driving northbound on Harlock Road in a golf cart with his 17-year-old son, when a pickup truck traveling in the same direction, "failed to slow or stop," and struck the back of the golf cart.

Troopers said the force of the collision caused the father and son to be thrown from the golf cart. Both were taken to a hospital in critical condition. 

FHP released two videos connected to the crash in hopes of locating the truck and its driver.
