CALHOUN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Two children and an adult were hospitalized after a drunk driver failed to stop at a stop sign, leading to a head-on crash.

The Florida Highway Patrol says that William Baggett, 45, of Blountstown, Fla. was driving south on 11th Street on Monday around 12:15 p.m. 

As he approached the intersection with State Road 20, Baggett failed to stop at a stop sign, causing a head on collision with another car.

All three occupants in the other car, a 37-year-old woman, a 16-year-old girl and a 10-year-old girl, suffered minor injuries in the crash and were transported to the Calhoun-Liberty Hospital. 

Baggett and the occupants in his car, which included a 38-year-old woman and a 4-year-old boy, were uninjured in the crash.

Troopers say Baggett has been charged with failure to obey stop sign, no proof of insurance, and driving a vehicle in unsafe condition.

They say that alcohol was also involved in the crash, but have not specified in what capacity.

We have requested the report and are waiting to hear back.
