LIBERTY COUNTY, Fla. — An 18-year-old girl from Michigan has been hospitalized in serious condition and a Tallahassee woman has been charged after a two-car accident in Liberty County.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the accident happened at about 7:15 p.m. Monday on State Road 267 at the intersection with State Road 20 in Liberty County.

According to FHP, Amanda Hollis was stopped at a stop sign and the 18-year was traveling westbound on State Road 20, approaching State Road 267.

FHP says Hollis entered the intersection in the direct path of the 18-year-old, hitting the side of the 18-year-old's car. After being hit, the 18-year-old's car spun off the roadway, hitting a standing sign support pole and a tree.

Hollis suffered minor injuries in the crash and is being charged with failure to yield at a stop intersection.

According to FHP, alcohol did not play a factor in the accident and both were wearing their seatbelts. They were taken to Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare.

FHP was assisted by the Liberty County Sheriff’s Office, Liberty County EMS and Fire Rescue.
