ALMA — Two passengers in a pickup truck were seriously injured Monday when they were ejected from the truck as it crashed on State Route 64 near here, said the Georgia State Patrol.
Sarah Welch, 24, of Alma, and Sabron Mosby, 21, of Alma, were both taken by helicopter to Memorial Medical Center in Savannah for treatment of their injuries, said Amanda Dixon, GSP Waycross post secretary.
Neither was wearing a seatbelt, she said.
Both were passengers in a Ford truck driven by Tevin Wright, 24, of Alma. Dixon said Wright was not injured and that he was wearing a seatbelt.
The truck was headed south on State Route 64 when it veered onto the west shoulder for 87 feet. Dixon said the truck began to spin counterclockwise, re-entered the roadway and continued to skid for 93 feet across both lanes.
The truck left the road another time on the east side for 28 feet, struck a culvert and ejected the passengers.
Dixon said the truck continued to rotate and began to overturn for 33 feet before coming to rest in a ditch.
Trooper Jerry Taylor investigated the 11:46 a.m. wreck.
