A Lowndes County man is behind bars after deputies uncovered nearly half a million dollars of marijuana.
Worth County -- Two badly damaged vehicles end up on completely opposite ends of the highway. One is a GMC Yukon flipped on its passenger side. The other is a Kia Optima in a wooded area off the road.
Officers believe that the Kia failed to yield at the the median causing it to hit the red Yukon heading North on Highway 300. "She hit the red GMC on the side causing it to flip over. It spun the white Kia around, and it came to rest on the West side of 300 and came to rest in the woods," said Georgia State Patrol Corporal David Ellis.
Albany Police officer Roderick Weaver and his wife Phyllis were in that Yukon headed to the state fair. Roderick was able to get out after the accident, but his wife was trapped.
A Worth county fire rescue team struggled for thirty minutes to free her from the mangled metal. Now family just hope that they both make it through okay.
"My brother- in-law is okay. The last time I went over, I did talk to him. But he said that she is up under the car, but now I see that they have gotten her out. So I just pray to the good Lord that they will be alright," said Greta Walker.
Phylis Irene Blankenship of Ashburn was the driver of the Kia. Officers ticketed her for failing to yield at that intersection. "I wouldn't say that this is much of a dangerous intersection as long as drivers exercise caution and follow traffic laws they'll be fine," said Corporal Ellis.
Traffic laws that may seem insignificant, but are in place to keep drivers safe. Sprinkled debris on the road serves as a reminder to all of this who drive down this highway.
All three people involved in the accident were sent to Phoebe Putney and are all in good condition.
