LEVY COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - A Tallahassee woman died after she was ejected from her car in a two-vehicle accident while traveling in Levy County, the Florida Highway Patrol says.

The woman was identified as Amanda M. Farnsworth, 38.

On Friday at 10:41 p.m., Farnsworth's 2000 Mercedes C300 was traveling westbound on County Road 346A, FHP says, and she failed to observe the posted stop sign at the intersection of County Road 341 and County Road 346A.

Her car had what FHP described as an "angular collision" with vehicle two, driven by Michael Rogers, 21, of Chiefland, FL, who had serious injuries. 

Both drivers were transported to Shands UF in critical condition. 

FHP says Farnsworth was not wearing seatbelts, and it was unknown whether Rogers was wearing seatbelts.

A passenger in Rogers' car received minor injuries and was also taken to Shands UF.
