ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Four Westover High School students were injured in a crash in South Dougherty County as they skipped school Wednesday.

Their Nissan Frontier rolled onto its roof in a ditch after striking a Pickup about 11:45 at Nelms Road and Stagecoach Road.

Police say 17 year old Kevin Naylor ran a stop sign. Neither he nor 16 year old William Matthews, 17 year old John Payne, and 16 year old David Armbrust was wearing a seat belt. Naylor and Payne were ejected but amazingly all the boys suffered only minor head injuries.

Dougherty County Police Officer Zane Dooley said "They did advise they were skipping school, and they had left school. We did find a bottle, half of a bottle of Jose Cuervo tequila in the vehicle. It doesn't appear they had begun drinking it, even though it was open."

The driver of the pickup, 57 year old Warren Harrell of Sylvester, was also treated at a hospital and released. Police charged Naylor with failure to stop at a stop sign as well as open container, no insurance, and seat belt violations.
