A single vehicle crash in Altha Thursday night sent two people to the hospital.
Ethan W. Noblin, 20, of Marianna, and Chelsea A. Walker, 17, of Altha, were transported to Calhoun-Liberty Hospital with minor injuries following the accident.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred just before 10 p.m. on Chipola Street in Altha. Noblin was reportedly behind the wheel of a 2008 Nissan Altima traveling east on CR 274. He allegedly ran a stop sign at the intersection of SR 71 and entered Chipola Street. The vehicle traveled one block east, drifted left, and entered the north shoulder, striking a utility pole and fence at 25590 NE
Pennington Street. The car crossed Pennington Street, then collided with a mobile home at 15860 NE Chipola Street. The vehicle was totaled.
Trooper R. Cox investigated and noted alcohol was a factor in the crash. However, the only charges filed at this time are for reckless driving.
