Teens Suffer Only Minor Injuries After Fiery High-Speed Crash in Columbia County
COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA. – August 15, 2018 (wrdw.com) Two teenage sisters suffered only minor injuries August 14 after a high-speed crash in Columbia County, Georgia, that resulted in a vehicle fire. The story is reported online by wrdw.com.*
At approximately 9:45 p.m. on August 14, 18-year-old Anesia Prosper and 17-year-old Malesia Prosper were traveling nearly 100 mph in a Chevrolet Camaro on William Few Parkway in Columbia County. Near the area of Magnolia Drive, the vehicle left the roadway, slammed into two utility poles, then crashed into several trees before igniting into flames. Remarkably, both girls walked away from the accident.
The older of the sisters, Anesia, was driving at the time, and she reportedly told police officers that she let her younger sister grab the wheel and steer around a curve in the road. Both girls were transported to a nearby hospital, but neither suffered serious injuries.
The crash caused a power outage in the area, affecting about 800 homes. Columbia County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Curry says it is miraculous the two girls survived, let alone left from the scene unscathed. “We don’t see people walk away from crashes of this magnitude, but luckily, in this case, we did,” Curry said. “No accident is the same, every accident has different circumstances and injuries. I’m just glad I was actually able to speak with both passengers in the vehicle.”
Anesia Prosper has been charged with reckless driving, driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain a lane, and passing in a no-passing zone. Officials also ordered a toxicology analysis to determine whether drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash.
