ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Florida man was air-lifted to a Macon hospital after his car slid under a tractor trailer in Crisp County.

Around 11:30 AM Friday, the car ran off the end of the I-75 ramp and under the trailer part of an 18 wheeler. The tractor trailer's wheels rolled over the car's hood.

Sixty-seven year old George Dawson of Ft. White, Florida was thrown out through his passenger window. He was transported to Crisp Regional Hospital and late this afternoon flown to Macon.
