Crisp County-- Dougherty District Attorney Ken Hodges has been seriously injured in a car crash on Interstate 75. The wreck happened just after lunch during heavy rain on I-75 in Crisp County.
Hodges and his chief assistant, Greg Edwards, were headed to a meeting in Forsyth when they were involved in a multi-car crash that involved a tractor trailer. The SUV they were traveling in overturned.
Hodges suffered injuries so serious that he was transferred from the hospital in Cordele to a trauma center in Macon. We do not know the extent of Hodges' injuries. Edwards' injuries were later determined to be substantial enough that he also was sent to the trauma center.
Three weeks ago today, Ken Hodges was re-elected to his third term in office as Dougherty District Attorney. We will keep you updated on his condition.
