RACEPOND — A Tifton woman was injured in a single-vehicle accident on U.S. 1 near mile marker 18 late Tuesday morning during a rain, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Demetrice Pettiford, 33, was transported to Mayo Clinic Health System in Waycross with complaint of a neck injury as a result of the 11:10 accident, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
Pettiford’s Nissan Sentra was traveling south on U.S. 1 when the car ran off the road and rotated clockwise until it struck a ditch, Dixon said. It then overturned and slid 43 feet and came to rest on its roof, facing west.
The accident was investigated by Trooper 1st Class Jerry Taylor.
