DADE CITY, Fla. — Paramedics transported three children and three adults to area hospitals after a driver ran a red light and caused a crash, Florida troopers said.

It happened just after noon Thursday at U.S. 301 and Centennial Road.

Troopers say a 77-year-old Dade City woman heading north on U.S. 301 ran a red light and crashed into an SUV. The crash caused her car and the SUV to spin around at the intersection.

The driver of the second car, a 72-year-old Dade City man, was injured. So, too, were his 67-year-old passenger and three children, ages 1, 6 and 8, according to the crash report.

Troopers cited the woman for running the red light.

All were taken to area hospitals for treatment, troopers said.
