Griffin, GA (October 16, 2020) – Around 10:20 p.m. on Thursday night, October 15, a serious single-vehicle crash took place in Griffin.
According to police, the accident took place in a heavily wooded area on Dundee Lake Circle. For reasons that are not yet known, the driver of a passenger vehicle lost control and went off the side of the road. The vehicle struck a few trees and became badly mangled as a result of the collision.
Two Spalding Regional EMS vehicles responded to the scene after they discovered that a medical helicopter was unable to fly in the area. Fire crews worked to extricate the driver and a passenger. It took longer than normal to get them free due to the severe damages to the vehicle.
Both patients were alert after they were extricated, though they suffered from back and shoulder injuries and were taken to local hospitals for treatment.
The roadway was cleared around 10:50 p.m.
Police continue their investigation into the circumstances of the crash.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
