LAKE CITY, Fla. – A woman was seriously injured early Saturday after another woman ran a stop sign and crashed into her, the Florida Highway Patrol said. 

Troopers said Eldon Jones, 49, and his passenger, Kimayetta Jones, 43, were driving south on State Road 47 when they were struck by a Jeep passing through the intersection of County Road 238. 

According to the crash report, 28-year-old Eva Ray ran the stop sign at the intersection and crashed into Jones.

Both drivers were treated at the scene for minor injuries, troopers said. Kimayetta Jones was airlifted to UF Health Gainesville in serious condition, troopers said.
