A 10-year-old Waycross girl was seriously injured Saturday when she, along with five others, was thrown off a four-wheel all-terrain vehicle as it overturned on Jeremy’s Trail, off U.S. 1 North, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Adrian Davis, 10, was taken by helicopter to UF Health in Jacksonville, Fla., for treatment of her injuries, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
The driver, Kelly Courson, 49, of Waycross, and four other passengers, Kenny Courson, 45, of East Dublin, Harley Davis, 13, of Waycross, Jasmine Davis, 12, of Waycross, and Skyler Johnson, 2, of Waycross, were all thrown off the machine, but none (save Adrian Davis) was injured, said Dixon.
Driving a Polaris Ranger, Kelly Courson was northbound on Jeremy’s Trail when he accelerated and spun as he turned around, said Dixon. The machine skidded for 17 feet, then overturned onto its side and came to rest facing southeast on the side of the roadway.
Cpl. Josh Taylor investigated the 12:20 p.m. accident.
No charges have been filed. The accident remains under investigation.
