Evans teen charged in March wreck


An Evans teen was charged today in connection with a single-vehicle wreck last month that injured four teens.

Police charged Taylor Dasher, 16, of the 500 block of Waterford Drive, with violating his restricted license, three seat-belt violations, failure to maintain lane and driving too fast for conditions, according to Columbia County sheriff's Capt. Steve Morris.

At about 6:30 a.m. March 20, Dasher crashed a Ford Explorer on Washington Road near Granderson Road in Appling.

Passenger Jessica Oldham, 13, who was initially listed in critical condition following the wreck, was released Wednesday from the Medical College of Georgia Hospital, according to a hospital spokeswoman.

Dasher and two other passengers, 14-year-olds Taylor Turner and Jordyn Paul, were treated and released.
