SPRING HILL — An 18-year-old woman was hospitalized late Monday after she was hit by a car while crossing Spring Hill Drive, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Samantha Nicole Horsley of Spring Hill was walking south with a group of friends across Spring Hill Drive near Pinehurst Drive just before 10 p.m. She was about 50 feet east of the crosswalk, according to the Highway Patrol.

Troopers said she walked in front of an eastbound 2004 Saturn driven by Jami D. Gibbs, 24, of Spring Hill. The Saturn's front right side hit Horsley.

She was taken to Bayfront Medical Center and was listed in stable condition.

Based on witness accounts, troopers said Gibbs had a green light and was not speeding. Damage to her vehicle was about $1,000.

The crash remains under investigation.
