Four people were injured on Saturday, Oct. 19, shortly after 5 p.m. after a vehicle failed to come to a stop at a stop sign at U.S. Highway 41 and County Road 323 south of Williston, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. 

Jonna Marie Russell, 46, of Summerville, sustained critical injuries and was taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center, while her passenger Jason Prough, 47, of Morriston, suffered minor injuries.

Ruth Harriet Phillips, 78, and Parker Phillips, 16, both of Williston, had minor injuries and were treated at UF Health Shands Hospital. 

Russell was driving a 2009 Kia Spectra westbound on CR 323 approaching the intersection with US 41 where Ruth Phillips was northbound, driving a 2007 Dodge Caravan approaching CR 323. 

FHP Trooper R.L. Carmichael wrote in his report that Russell failed to stop at the intersection and drove into the path of the Caravan which struck the left side of Russell's vehicle. The impact caused Phillips' Caravan to rotate counterclockwise and swerve off the shoulder.
