Sumter County-- A wreck in Sumter County leaves a man trapped in his SUV all night, after it was side swiped by another vehicle. The man was traveling North on Highway forty-nine just inside of Sumter County, When the driver sad his Ford Explorer was hit by a southbound gray Lexus.

The collision sent his vehicle off the road into a heavily wooded area, where he remained trapped until a motorist this morning noticed the wreckage and stopped to investigate. Officers say even though the man was trapped he was not injured. 

"He stated a gray Lexus side swiped him, causing him to runoff the road, approximately one-hundred and fifty-two feet into the woods, where the top of the Explorer struck a tree crushing the roof in on the driver. The driver left via ambulance going to the hospital, with no complaints. He was transported just for evaluation" said Sgt. Tommy Peebles with the Georgia State Patrol.

The Georgia State Patrol in Americus is investigating to see what role the driver of the gray Lexus played in the incident.
