Man airlifted after Worth wreck

A bad wreck has caused traffic to come nearly to a standstill in Thursday western Worth County, on Highway 82, near Woodcrest Road, confirmed by Sheriff Jeff Hobby.

A helicopter landed to evacuate Bill Powell, who we believe to be about 80,  for treatment of serious injuries after his car ran off Highway 82 and overturned, about 6 miles west of Sylvester. He was taken to a hospital in Macon.

We're waiting for details from the State patrol about what may have caused the crash.

Powell is in fair condition at Navicent Hospital in Macon.
