BLACKSHEAR — A driver was charged with driving under the influence and possession of an open container Sunday after his vehicle crashed on U.S. Highway 84 between Waycross and Blackshear, at mile marker 4, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Jarred White, 21, of Blackshear, was injured in the 12:40 a.m. crash. He was taken by Pierce County Emergency Medical Service ambulance to Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross for treatment of his injuries, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
Driving a Toyota Tacoma, White was eastbound on U.S. Highway 84 in the inside lane when he crossed both westbound lanes and veered off the shoulder of the road for 223 feet. Dixon said the pickup truck then struck two ditches and a power pole, began to spin counterclockwise and overturned numerous times coming to rest in a private yard about 53 feet from the roadway.
Trooper Greg Stone investigated the accident.
