Two injured when car slams into farm trailer

LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) - Two people received minor injuries to their faces when their car plowed into the back of a farm trailer Thursday afternoon.

The crash happened on Highway 41 S. in Lowndes County around 3 p.m.

Georgia State Patrol Trooper J.W. Kinsey investigated the crash and said a Chevy truck pulling a farm trailer was heading South and slowing down to make a right turn, but the car behind it didn't hit the breaks in time.

"[The] white car attempting to slow down applied the breaks about 15 feet and struck the rear of the trailer," explained Trooper Kinsey.

Both people in the white car were taken to SGMC for treatment.

As of 5 p.m. Thursday, there was no word on any charges.
