BAKER COUNTY, Fla. —
A crash in Baker County Friday night leaves six injured after a teenager hit a ditch and flipped his car over.
FHP says 19-year-old Korey Newman was driving southbound on Smokey Road in Glen St. Mary when he tried to pass another car.
When he sped up, his front tire caught a ditch and flipped the car, tossing all five passengers on to the roadway. None of them were wearing seatbelts according to FHP.
Newman and 2 other passengers suffered minor injuries. Two 17-year-olds and a 20-year-old were taken to Shands Jacksonville in serious condition.
Newman was charged with reckless driving and not wearing a seat belt. An FHP report said alcohol was involved but there was no word on whether or not the driver had been drinking.
