Fretwell said McGhee grabbed the steering wheel and turned it, causing the car the car to run off the road, hitting several trees.

McGhee received head injuries and shoulder injuries, and was airlifted to Archbold Hospital in Thomasville, the region's only Level I Trauma Center.

Hall was transported to Phoebe Putney with a broken hand.

Both were wearing seat belts, and the air bags deployed.

Charges are pending in the crash.
