A Homosassa teen, Courtney Baker, 14, was hurt badly riding her bike to school Wednesday morning on Cardinal Lane. She was traveling east around 7 a.m. on Cardinal Street in Lecanto. Also eastbound on Cardinal was Scott Andrew Ferrebee, 26, in a white 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer. Ferrebee slowed down to 35 in a 55 mph zone and proceeded to go by Baker when she turned left in front of Ferrebee. The force of the collision incapacitated Baker, who was flown to Bayfront Medical Center in St. Petersburg.
The latest report indicates Courtney is recovering from a concussion; if there are any other injuries, they are not known at this time.
