Hwy 56 wreck injures teen today

Emergency workers had to cut a 16-year-old out of his truck this morning after a three-car wreck on Georgia Highway 56.

The driver, whose name was not immediately released, pulled out onto Highway 56 from 4-H Club Road when he was hit on the driver’s side by a Volkswagen Beetle, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Pletcher.

The accident sent the teen’s Cheverolet S-10 across the northbound lanes of traffic where it was hit by another car, Pletcher said.

The driver of the truck and a passenger in the Volkswagen suffered only minor injuries.

No one was injured in the third vehicle.

The driver of the truck will likely be cited for failure to yield to a stop sign, Pletcher said.
