Three sisters severely injured in Worth co. car wreck

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - Worth county emergency units responded to a one vehicle wreck with multiple injuries this morning around 9 a.m.

Georgia State Patrol Trooper Robert Corbin said three Worth county sisters were driving a 2002 Ford pick-up truck going westbound on Jewel Crowe Road, towards Albany. 

Trooper Corbin said the driver, 17-year-old Mikaela Hope, over corrected after her right side tires touched the shoulder of the road.

It caused the truck to turn clockwise across the road, striking a ditch on the north shoulder of Jewel Crowe Road.

Trooper Corbin said the truck then went airborne and hit a tree.

Mikaela's twin sister Angela was in the passenger seat, and their 14-year-old step-sister was sitting in the backseat.

Trooper Corbin said Mikaela and Angela were both wearing their seatbelts, but the 14-year-old was not.

Mikaela was air-lifted from the accident and taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with severe head injuries.

Angela is being treated at Phoebe Putney Hospital, complaining of right-side pain.

The 14-year-old was airlifted to Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta. She is unresponsive and suffering severe spine injury.  

Trooper Corbin reminds all travelers this holiday season to wear their seatbelts
