Two LaGrange residents were injured Wednesday afternoon in a car wreck on Whitesville Road.
Georgia State Patrol Trooper Brad Turner was dispatched to Whitesville Road near Wood Valley Drive at about 1:22 p.m. Wednesday to the wreck where the drivers of both cars sustained injuries.
Though the accident is still being investigated, Turner said that physical evidence matched the with what a witnesses’ accounts. Turner said a white, newer model Camry, driven by Donald Murphy, 59 was traveling southbound on Whitesville Road and, for an unknown reason, the car drifted into the northbound lane striking the driver’s side of an oncoming gold, older model Camry, driven by Electa Brown, 78.
Brown was extricated from her vehicle and AMR worked “pretty intently” on her before she was airlifted to the Columbus Medical Center, according to Turner. Murphy sustained head trauma and was transported to the West Georgia Medical Center. The conditions of each victim were unknown at the time of this post.
