Lee County- A 15 year old girl is dead and the driver remains in critical condition after a deadly wreck in Lee County. A Dodge Dakota extended cab with four teens overturned along Armena Road between Highways 32 and 82 in southwestern Lee County Friday night.

The Georgia State Patrol did find alcohol at the scene, but haven't determined if alcohol played a factor in the crash. Two of the teens ran to a neighbor's house for help.

"Two kids just knocked on the door and said they had an accident. We went down there and two people were ejected from the vehicle. Little girl, didn't have any movement, she just looked like she had already died," said Buddy O'Brien of Lee County.

The driver, 17 year old Michael Odom of Leesburg remains in critical condition at Phoebe Putney memorial Hospital.  The Georgia State Patrol plans to pursue charges against those who provided the teens with alcohol. The driver remains hospitalized. Several of the teens were not wearing seatbelts. The crash remains under investigation.
