Although the accident remains under investigation, officials believe both drivers are potentially at fault for a Tuesday afternoon accident.

Around 3:30 p.m., members of Clay County Sheriff's Department, TransCare and Clay County Search and Rescue, were dispatched to an accident scene near the intersection of CR 950 N (Central Avenue) and CR 200 W.

According to Deputy James Switzer, Cindi Burris, 50, Brazil, allegedly failed to yield the right of way while traveling westbound on Central Avenue when her green van was struck by a white Oldsmobile driven by an unidentified juvenile, whom officials believe was allegedly speeding to fast to avoid collision.

Both drivers were transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for injuries sustained in the accident. No injuries were reported for a juvenile passenger in the Oldsmobile.

Both vehicles sustained extensive damage, with the green van's damage located along the driver's side and the Oldsmobile on the front end near the driver's side.

Although further details are unavailable due to the ongoing investigation, officials believe both drivers could potentially be issued citations.

Sounds like the police needs to be on that road when school gets out to watch the kids. In this case it sounds like the kid should not have been speeding. I'm sure a 50 year old woman is not going to pull out in front of a speeding car.
