JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Action News is learning more about the investigation into an ATV crash in St. Augustine that sent two young women to the hospital.
Ashley Dighton, 17, was driving the ATV with Shanna Devoe, 20, riding as a passenger.
A traffic crash report released Wednesday by the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office says Dighton ran a stop sign at Second Avenue and Jackson Boulevard. The four-wheeler collided with a sport utility vehicle driven by Debra Dya on Jackson Boulevard.
The crash report said Dighton had “exceeded the posted speed limit” and was driving in a “careless or negligent manner.”
Dighton and Devoe were thrown from the ATV on impact.
A 911 call was released Wednesday from a neighbor who came to the scene to help.
“There’s two girls laying in the grass,” she told the operator. “A windshield is busted. Please. Please.”
The 911 caller tells the operator she is unsure of exactly what happened, but can see the two girls are injured.
“Both of them have leg injuries,” she said. “Both of them.”
She tells the operator that Dighton is in worse condition.
“She can’t move. She can’t move,” the caller said.
Devoe was taken to Flagler Hospital for treatment and was released the next day. Dighton remains at UF Health, where she has undergone surgery.
Dyal was not injured.
The Sheriff’s Office told Action News it is investigating other factors surrounding the ATV and the crash. Charges are pending.
