Meigs,  GA (WALB) -  An elderly man pulled in front of a mother and her two kids and crashed in Thomas County.  No one was seriously hurt, but everyone was taken to the hospital.

 At 10:30 this morning 40-year-old Kristine Coppage Kimbel and her two kids, 8-year-old Sophie and 6-year-old Jacob Coppage, were traveling north on US 19 in a maroon Honda Element.

73-year-old Early West was driving a white pick up truck. He attempted to cross US 19 onto Midway Church Road, and they crashed. 

"After striking it in the right side, the Honda pivoted around, blocking the northbound lane. The truck went over into the ditch over there," said Trooper Trooper J. B. Miller.

West has a cut over his eye. The mother and children complained of pain, but they're all okay.
