The Troup High School student who was airlifted to Columbus Midtown Medical Center last Friday suffered only minor injuries, according to LaGrange Police Department Senior Officer Clint Gibson.

Three THS students in a Honda Accord and a 49-year-old adult in a Chevrolet Silverado received injuries after the vehicles collided on Hamilton Road last week.

The two other minors and the adult were taken to WellStar West Georgia Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.

Gibson said the student was life-flighted out of caution.

The student stayed at the hospital overnight, but was discharged the next day, according to Gibson.
