St. Petersburg, Florida -- Police say a woman is in custody after she drove her pickup truck on a popular bike and jogging trail.

Calls came in to police shortly after 9 a.m. Tuesday of a Ford F-150 pickup truck driving recklessly, northbound on the Pinellas Trail and exiting near 38th Avenue North.

Witnesses say the truck forced several bicyclists off the trail and ran over several barricades. The vehicle then appeared to head back south on the trail, where it was finally stopped near 5th Avenue North and 71st Street.

Paramedics report the woman was acting wildly and appeared to be under the influence of some form of narcotic. She was taken to the hospital for evaluation. Charges are pending.

No injuries are reported, and police say the damage seems to be restricted to various barricades along the Pinellas Trail.
