Troopers reported that Nadene Janigan smashed her SUV into the back of a Honda Accord at a stoplight before driving away. The collision pushed the Accord into the middle of the intersection, and the 28-year-old driver and 9-year-old passenger in the car suffered minor injuries, troopers said.

Janigan later flipped her SUV on US 41 at Long Street in Lake City, according to the report. She suffered minor injuries.
