Irwin County wreck injures 7 people

June 16, 2007

A serious wreck in Irwin County Saturday afternoon sends seven people to the hospital. 

It happened before five o'clock at Highway 132 and 125. Troopers say the driver of a blue van was driving down 125 when he tried to turn onto 132.

That's when the driver of a black car rear ended him.  

"The van pulled out, tried to do a U-turn. The car tried to stop, hit it and I just got out and tried to do what I could do," says witness William Calhoun.

A 17 year old was thrown out of the van. That person was not wearing a seatbelt.

There were two children in the black car. One of them may have serious injuries to the face.

The injured were taken to Tift Regional and the Irwin County Hospital. No citations have been issued yet, but troopers are still investigating.
