Rain Causes Accident

No injures in Tuesday I-24 wreck... By Barry West

Just before 11:00 Tuesday morning (July 10, 2012), a rain storm hit I-24 around the 106 mile marker. A Georgia man, his wife, and child were traveling east when the Jeep they were riding in began to hydroplane. The Jeep left the interstate and crashed into a tree, causing it to flip up on its side. The family was checked out by Coffee Co. EMS and was not transported. The air bags seem to have caused the most scrapes and bruises. The heavy rain and the wet roads were determined to be the cause of the crash. Coffee County Sheriff’s Deputies worked the scene.
