December 11, 2018

LAURENS COUNTY, GA. – According to an online news report from 13wmaz.com, the teenager tragically killed in a crash in Laurens County, Georgia, was a student at Jeff Davis High School. Four children were ejected from one vehicle in the wreck, and nine people were hospitalized.*

A 2005 Lincoln Aviator traveling west on Holiday Road in Laurens County failed to stop at a stop sign at the intersection with Scotland Road. The Lincoln crossed into the path of a 2015 Ford F-150 traveling southbound on Scotland Road. The Ford struck the Lincoln on the passenger’s side, according to Georgia State Patrol.

A family from Hazlehurst, Georgia, was in the Lincoln, and four children were ejected from the vehicle. Georgia State Patrol said one of the children, a 15-year-old girl, died at the scene. Her name has been released but withheld from this story for privacy reasons. Jeff Davis High School Principal Chris Roppe confirmed to local media that the teen was a student at Jeff Davis. 

The other three children in the Lincoln were injured and transported to the Medical Center, Navicent Health in Macon, Georgia. Troopers said they were not sure where the children were riding, but they were all somewhere in the back of the Lincoln and were not properly secured. Laurens County Superintendent Daniel Brigman said none of the surviving children was a student in Laurens County Schools. 

Four people from Florida were in the Ford at the time of the crash, and they suffered minor injuries. In total, nine people were hospitalized after the wreck. One person remains in critical condition. Georgia State Patrol is still investigating and has not yet released additional information.
