Dogs given temporary home after serious crash

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A man is charged in a weather-related crash in Dougherty County that injured two people and left two dogs in the care of a shelter.

Dougherty County Police say 84 year-old Ban McGee told them he didn't see the car coming on the Liberty Expressway when he was driving his GMC pickup truck east on Nelms Road. It happened just before 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Police say he drove into the path of 19-year-old Charmane Wilson, who was driving a Saturn north on the expressway and hit McGee.

Both were transported to the hospital. Wilson was later released, but McGee was listed in serious condition Tuesday night.

McGee is charged with failure to yield after stopping at a stop sign.

Two dogs were inside the pickup, they were not injured.

"There was two puppy dogs in the pickup truck. We were not able to get anyone from his home to come get them. So the Albany Humane Society came out and helped us and they have possession of the dogs to keep them safe," said SGT. Lee Reynolds with the Dougherty County Police Department.

The Albany Humane Society is keeping the dogs until they can be reunited with their owner.
