No one was injured, but Kime's 2005 Pontiac Sunfire was totaled, and the teen's 2012 Chevy Impala had functional damage. Kime is being charged with Failure to Obey a Stop or Yield Sign.
Then at about 6:30pm, the sheriff received a 911 call, reporting a vehicle in the ditch at Highway 18 and Garden Road, west of Clermont. A car driven by 46 year old Lynn Helgerson of Eldorado, went out of control and into the ditch.

And just before 7pm Saturday, the sheriff responded to a car vs deer accident on Lincoln Road, near Eldorado. A vehicle driven by 52 year old Bonnie Bootsmiller was southbound, when a deer ran out from a ditch, striking the 2018 Honda Odyssey. No one was injured, but the vehicle had $6,000 in damage.
