For causes four wrecks

MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) - Four crashes in Mitchell County in 15 minutes Monday.

Sheriff's officials say fog had a lot to do with it.

One of those wrecks happened here on Dixie highway north of Sealy road.

It was the last in the series of wrecks between 7:45 and 8 am.

Investigators say people need to plan ahead when fog is in the forecast.

"We urge people to slow down, turn on their headlights be prepared to stop. Because you can't see visibility it's very low especially in the fog," Matt Miller said.

Several people were taken to the hospital in those wrecks, but no one suffered life-threatening injuries.
