ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A wreck in Dougherty County sent one man to the hospital after police say the driver of another car failed to yield at a stop sign.

Dougherty County Police say 31-year-old Shannon Flury was behind the wheel of a Ford 500 going north on Tarver Road towards Leary Road when he hit a Dodge Ram. 55-year-old Donell Mathis was the driver.

Officers say wrecks are common at this intersection. They say some drivers tend to pull through the stop signs before double checking for oncoming traffic.

Paramedics rushed Mathis to the hospital for treatment. He's expected to be okay.
