DELAND, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a 62-year-old skydiver suffered serious injuries in a rough landing in central Florida.

Police say Michael Trusser of DeLand possibly hit a vehicle as he landed Saturday afternoon in a Volusia County Schools bus terminal. Trusser was taken to a hospital by helicopter.

Sgt. Chris Estes tells The Daytona Beach News-Journal that Trusser's parachute had a "hard opening" that caused him to fall too quickly.

Additional details were not immediately available.


On Saturday in Palatka, a man died after a skydiving accident.
