A 12-year-old driver was involved in an accident near the intersection of 190th Avenue and 380th Street at 2 p.m. Thursday.
Clay County deputies responded to a two-car accident, and determined that a 12-year-old juvenile female, from Spencer, was traveling eastbound on 380th Street in a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan, belonging to Heather Gustoff, when she failed to obey a stop sign and entered the intersection of 190th Avenue. The Grand Caravan drove into the path of a northbound 1997 Ford Taurus, being operated by Ardine Anne Olhausen, 75, of Sutherland.
The Taurus collided with the Grand Caravan and entered the east ditch on 190th Avenue.
Gustoff's Grand Caravan, which included three other passengers, sustained $500 in estimated damages, and Olhausen's Taurus received $1,500 in damages.
The 12-year-old was cited for operating without a valid driver's license, failure to obey a stop sign and failure to maintain control.
Daniel Sefcik, of Spencer, was additionally charged with child endangerment and interference with official acts.
