At approximately 8 a.m., officials were dispatched to a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 40 near County Road 200 W., Brazil.
According to Clay County Sheriff Mike Heaton, witnesses said a white pickup truck, driven by Mariah Chesshir, 17, Brazil, failed to stop at a stop sign on CR 200 W., before crossing U.S. 40.
A passenger car, driven by Erline Carbo, 27, Brazil, was traveling west on U.S. 40. According to reports, Carbo was unable to avoid a collision when Chesshir drove into her path.
Carbo and her three children, ranging in age from 11 months to 9, were transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for injuries. The 9-year-old was later transferred to Riley Children's Hospital suffering from back injuries.
According to Heaton, Carbo and her three children were in seatbelts, a booster seat and a car seat.
Chesshir was transported to St. Vincent Clay Hospital for injuries. She was cited for Failure to Yield Right of Way.
"Right now, it appears to be minor injuries," Heaton said. "It appears there was nothing life-threatening."
The crash is still under investigation and the Carbo family was provided new car seats for their children.
Other agencies responding to the accident included TransCare, Brazil City Police Department, Brazil City Fire Department and Clay County Search and Rescue.
