(New4Jax) -A teenage girl was seriously injured last week when she fell from the rear of a golf cart and struck her head on the driveway of a home off State Road 16 in St. Johns County, according to state traffic crash records.

After the fall, Olivia Love, 17, was flown to Orange Park Medical Center, where she continued to recover Wednesday.

Family members told News4Jax that Love, a junior at Nease High School, has been making progress after undergoing brain surgery and other procedures. They have been by her side ever since the night of the Jan. 2 accident.

“Whenever I don’t have class, I’m here,” said Bobby Love, Olivia’s older brother who described her as a caring and funny person.

Danielle Love, Olivia’s older sister, even took a semester off. CONTINUE
