Two children were shot after the men driving the cars shot at each other in a traffic accident on a Florida highway, a sheriff said this week.

The injuries to the children, a 5-year-old girl who was shot in the leg and a 14-year-old girl who was shot in the back, were not life-threatening, Nassau County Sheriff Bill Leeper said.

“There could have been two dead children because of two stupid grown men,” Leeper said at a news conference Monday.

William Hale, 35, of Douglas, Georgia, and Frank Allison, 43, of Callahan, Florida, have been charged with attempted murder, Leeper said.

The shooting happened around 6 p.m. Saturday on U.S. Route 1, north of Jacksonville, after aggressive movements between the drivers, including “grabbing the brakes,” Leeper said.

Hale, who was driving a Dodge Ram, pulled up next to Allison in a Nissan Murano, the Nissan’s front passenger gave the Ram the middle finger, and someone in that truck threw a water bottle into the Nissan through the open window, Leeper said.

Allison reportedly pulled out a Sig Sauer .45-caliber pistol and fired one shot, which went through the door and hit Hale’s 5-year-old daughter in the leg, according to the sheriff and an arrest report.

Hale then reportedly pulled out a Glock 9mm pistol and fired seven or eight rounds, hitting the Nissan three times. One of those bullets struck a 14-year-old who was sitting in the back of the Nissan, according to an arrest report. The girl was hit in the back and had a collapsed lung, Leeper said.

Both men stopped their vehicles when they saw a sheriff’s patrol car, got out and started arguing. A sheriff’s deputy broke off the fight and called Nassau County Fire Rescue, who took the children to a hospital for treatment, Leeper said.

Allison and Hale have been released from prison after posting bail, Leeper said. Court records show that they are charged with second-degree attempted murder. Records do not show that supplications have been entered.

An attorney listed as representing Allison did not immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday. Online court records showed no attorney for Hale.
