JESUP — Two Brantley County teenagers were injured Saturday when the all-terrain vehicle they were riding crashed on 10-Mile Road southeast of here, just inside Wayne County near the Brantley County border, said the Georgia State Patrol.
The injured girls are Brantley County High School students.
The driver, Kayston Salazar, of Mt. Pleasant, was taken by Brantley County EMS ambulance to Southeast Georgia Medical Center in Brunswick for treatment of her injuries, said Steve Drury, Brunswick GSP post spokesman.
The passenger, Rhyley Musgrove, 13, also of Mt. Pleasant, was taken by ambulance to Wayne Memorial Hospital in Jesup for treatment of her injuries, said Drury.
Both girls were wearing shoulder harnesses and seatbelts, Drury said.
Driving a 2010 Arctic Cat Prowler ATV, Kayston Salazar was southbound on 10-Mile Road when the road took a curve to the right. Drury said the machine ran off the west shoulder for 24 feet before striking a ditch. The ATV then spun clockwise for 16 feet and struck a tree with the driver’s side, continued another five feet and came to rest against a second tree.
No charges were filed.
Trooper Christian Siena investigated the 8:48 p.m. accident.
