Four people were injured in four area accidents over the weekend, said a Georgia State Patrol spokesperson.
A passenger in a vehicle was injured Saturday when the sport utility vehicle overturned on Terry Way near Mars Hill Road, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
Madison Miller, 15, of Hoboken, was taken by Brantley County ambulance to Satilla Regional Medical Center in Waycross for treatment of injuries following the 1:45 p.m. accident, said Dixon.
Driving a Nissan Murano, Logan Miller, 18, of Hoboken, was southbound on Terry Way when a dog entered his path and he swerved to avoid hitting the animal.
Dixon said the vehicle slid and spun clockwise, striking a ditch with the front of the vehicle. Dixon said the SUV continued spinning clockwise and overturned onto its roof.
The driver and a second passenger, Justin Manning, 16, of Hoboken, were not injured, Dixon said.
Trooper Jeffrey Robinson investigated.
A Lakeland man, Wendell Wrice, 55, of Lakeland, was taken by Clinch County ambulance to Clinch County Memorial Hospital Saturday for treatment following a 1:55 a.m. accident when his truck crashed on State Road 37 near Homerville, said Dixon.
Wrice was charged with driving under the influence, Dixon said.
Driving a Mazda pickup truck, Wrice was eastbound on State Road 37 when he veered onto the shoulder of the roadway for 507 feet and struck a utility pole. Dixon said the truck began to overturn for 79 feet, coming to final rest on its roof on the south shoulder.
Trooper Sherman McClain investigated the accident.
A Blackshear man was injured Saturday when his pickup truck ran off the roadway and struck a road sign and a tree, said Dixon.
Rogdricis Kennedy, 21, was taken by ambulance to Satilla Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries following the 4:43 a.m. wreck, said Dixon .
Kennedy was charged with driving under the influence, Dixon said.
Driving a GMC Sierra, Kennedy was eastbound on Georgia 32 about a mile west of Mershon Road when he failed to maintain a lane and crossed onto the north shoulder. Dixon said the truck continued for 308 feet, hit a road sign, traveled another 279 feet and re-entered the roadway.
The truck then began to rotate counterclockwise across both lanes for 91 feet, entered the south shoulder for 35 feet, hit a road sign with the driver’s side, continued another 20 feet and hit a tree. Dixon said the truck rotated clockwise for seven feet before coming to rest.
Trooper Jerry Taylor led the investigation.
A one-vehicle accident on U.S. Highway 84 in Clinch County Friday sent Edward Tiner, 54, of Homerville, to the hospital with injuries, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Tiner was taken by ambulance to Clinch County Memorial Hospital for treatment following the 9:08 a.m. accident, said Dixon.
Driving a GMC Aero tractor trailer, Tiner was eastbound on U.S. Highway 84 when he drove too close to the edge of the roadway. Dixon said the truck skidded for 356 feet off the roadway when his load shifted and caused the rig to overturn. The vehicle came to final rest in the eastbound lane facing east.
Dixon did not indicate what the trailer was hauling.
