Hit and Run Accident Paralyzes Teenage Girl

SPRING HILL – A 15-year-old girl is lucky to be alive, after she was struck by a car last Friday night at the intersection of Spring Hill Drive and Abby Ave. 

According to the Teen’s Mother, Teresa Collins, around 9:00 pm her Daughter Chantail was crossing Spring Hill Drive with a group of friends, when a dark colored vehicle struck Chantail and left the scene.

Due to poor lighting in the area, witnesses could not provide a description of the suspect vehicle.

Chantail was transported to Bayonet Point Hospital with serious injuries, where doctors says he suffered  concussion, fractured clavicle, and nerve damage resulting in paralysis to her left side. Chantail must undergo additional testing to determine the exact cause of her paralysis, which they are hoping is a temporary condition.

If you have information leading to the whereabouts of a possible suspect, contact the Florida Highway Patrol or Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.

  • I know how you guys feel. I grew up in in Springhill and I know there has been a lot of deaths on that road. Our thoughts and prayers go to the girls family and friends. I do hope they find who did this. I also hope that who did that, has a conscience and will do the right thing and turn them selves in to the police. Don’t give up… you will get justice for the accident of your daughter. Hernando County needs to step too.. Please let us all know what happens in the future with her and the person who is responsible for this…

Im heart goes out to her and her family . just know your daughter is in my prayers along with her family and mother. If that was my Jada i dont know except i would be beside myself . Strength comes in prayer and i believe we should all be saying a prayer for this family and Chantail. I know Gods miracles happen when we reach out to him. So take 5 minutes what can it hurt.
