Six-year-old suffers minor injuries in Hernando crash

RIDGE MANOR — A 6-year-old girl sustained minor injuries Thursday morning after she was struck by a car at a bus stop on Cortez Boulevard, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Janassa Terry, who lives in eastern Hernando County, was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa.

At about 8:10 a.m., 32-year-old Ramona Lujan-Rodriguez of Webster was driving west on Cortez when she failed to see a stopped school bus, which had red lights on and a stop sign deployed, according to an FHP report. Lujan-Rodriguez swerved to avoid the bus, lost control and went onto the grassy shoulder. After about 40 feet, the car hit a parked car that Janassa was exiting to walk to the school bus. The driver of the parked car, Earline Venessa Terry, 27, also suffered minor injuries

Lujan-Rodriguez was ticketed for careless driving, according to the FHP. She and a 61-year-old passenger were uninjured.
