Two people are hospitalized in a wreck that happened Saturday morning in Worth County. 

Worth County Fire Rescue, Worth County Deputies, Georgia State Patrol, and Air Evac Life flight Team arrived at the crash on Hwy 33 North at 10:00 a.m.

Georgia State Patrol says 53-year-old Anthony Landrum from Worth County was driving his Ford pick up in the North bound lane when it crossed the center line into the South bound lane striking the Tractor Trailer driven by 63-year-old Kenneth Tyner of Colquitt County. 

Landrum suffered injuries to his leg and was air lifted to Macon Medical Center where he is in critical condition. 

Tyner was transported to Phoebe Worth Hospital for treatment for a fractured left knee. 

The wreck caused 250 gallons of diesel fuel from the tractor trailer to spill onto the highway. The North bound lane is open, but traffic in the South bound lane is being rerouted to the North bound lane. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation and Hazmat crews are on the scene. 

Cleanup crews are using foam and sand to clean up the spill. 

GSP says the crash still remains under investigation.
