Scotland, GA – Rollover Accident Injures Two Teens on GA-149

Scotland, GA (May 4, 2022) – Two teens were injured in a serious rollover crash that took place on a major Scotland, Georgia roadway on Tuesday morning, May 3. 

Georgia State Patrol officials confirmed that the accident happened around 6 a.m. A driver was traveling south on GA-149 in a maroon Chevrolet when they entered a curve in the roadway. This caused their vehicle to go off the side of the road. The driver overcorrected to try and gain control but the vehicle crossed all lanes and overturned in a ditch off the side of the road. The vehicle was severely damaged due to the collision. 

Fire crews, paramedics, and numerous other local responders were called to the scene. They confirmed that both the driver and the passenger in the vehicle, identified as two 18-year-olds, were ejected during the crash. The passenger was badly injured and airlifted by medical helicopter to Atrium Medical Center and the driver was rushed by ambulance to Jeff Davis County Hospital. 

Due to the severity of the crash, the roadway was blocked in multiple lanes for some time.

The circumstances leading up to the accident are still being investigated at this time. 

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
