On Sunday evening, a 9-year-old girl was seriously injured in an ATV car crash when she crashed into the path of an incoming car in Columbia County.

Sierra L. Graham was rushed to the Shands Hospital at the University of Florida preceding the accident.
The Florida Highway Patrol reported that no one else was injured at the scene of the crash at 4162 SE County Road 18.

The other vehicle involved in the crash belonged to Tami Givens Slocum, 50, who was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu.

Sierra was on the north shoulder of CR 18 trying to get into the driveway when Slocum was headed east on CR 18. Sierra crossed into Slocum’s direct path and Slocum attempted to avoid the crash by steering right into a ditch.

As a result of the impact, the ATV’s right tire got caught on the Chevy’s left front tire and fender. Sierra was ejected from the ATV, which was dragged roughly 101 feet from the point of the collision.
At this time, no one has been charged pending further investigation.
