Man Severely Injured in a Head-on Collision on GA Route 49 in Columbus, Georgia
According to an online news report posted on unionrecorder.com, a head-on collision occurred on Saturday afternoon in Baldwin County, Georgia.* The accident involved two pickup trucks and caused severe injuries to a Columbus man. The head-on collision transpired at around 3:40 in the afternoon along GA Route 49 close by Robinson-Johnson Road, according to a crash report created by Georgia State Patrol Trooper Kevin Kirby with the Milledgeville post.
The accident victim who sustained serious injuries has been identified as a 37-year-old man, Trooper Kirby reported.
According Baldwin County Fire Rescue first responders, the victim was extracted from his wrecked Toyota Tundra pickup truck utilizing the special cutting tool called the "Jaws of Life." Once the victim was freed from the accident wreckage, he was provided with medical treatment at the accident scene by Grady Emergency Medical Services. He was air-evacuated by the medical helicopter crew from the Atrium Health Navicent-The Medical Center in Macon, Georgia. The victim was still hospitalized as of Monday afternoon.
Trooper Kirby also stated that the victim was unconscious when he was freed from his pickup truck by the firefighters and first reponders.
The accident report states that the Toyota Tundra pickup truck driver was heading eastbound on GA Route 49, while the other driver was heading west.
