A 22-year-old woman was sent to the emergency room Monday morning after a single-car crash in Evans.

Jenna Victoria Sevigny, of Evans, was found on North Belair Road about 3 a.m. ejected halfway out of the rear windshield of her car, Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said in an e-mail.

Authorities think Sevigny was traveling north when the car drifted off the shoulder of the road. Sevigny likely overcorrected and went off the road on the opposite side.

Morris said the car slid about 100 feet when it hit a pine tree and broke in half, with the rear section sliding another 25 feet.

Sevigny was extricated and taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital. A spokeswoman said Monday afternoon that Sevigny did not yet appear in the hospital’s computer system; however, Morris said he believes Sevigny was in serious condition.

Morris said Sevigny wasn’t wearing her seat belt.

For some reason, people can't

For some reason, people can't get the turn arrow and right turn on red thing straight here. My mother was hit in the same place last year. Lot's of impatience at this intersection with the school and business traffic. North Belair is over due for widening. but residents have fought it. It's the last part of rural living located close to the town centre.

I can picture it in my mind,

I can picture it in my mind, Willow — two cars facing each other at the light on Furys Ferry. One gets the green arrow and turns left. The other turns right on red. The two cars end up trying to occupy the same space on Belair!

I understand what you are

I understand what you are saying Willow, but this accident did not occur at the intersection. It occurred in the vicinity of Oakey Grove Baptist Church.

And, by the way...the driver with the green arrow has the right-of-way. It's too bad that too many drivers do not know what it means to stop on red before turning.

Yeah, fatboyhog, didn't have

Yeah, fatboyhog, didn't have this information when I posted. Also, what happens at that particular intersection, is that drivers make conflicting left turns from both directions, (Mulliken Road and North Belair Rd), on the green light without the arrow, are too daft to realize that the oncoming car has the right away going straight and also on the right turn on green. It's a very dangerous intersection, not to be taken for granted. Hope this makes sense to you.

I think the problem is the four way stop further up in Evans Town Center. They get the "we take turns" here mentality going and can't switch their brains back to the red light rules. Of course, cell phones have rendered many brainless while driving.

Back to the young lady; so glad she was rescued; so not a good time of the a.m. to need help. Hope she didn't have to wait long for relief. And so glad that her car stayed visable. (There is a steep drop off by the bridge at the train tracks in that area.)

Again, nothing good happens after midnight.

She was found at 3:00 AM, how long before that did the accident happen?

allhans, earlier the

allhans, earlier the article stated a time of 2:30 a.m. (?) However long she waited, it was an eternity, if she was conscious. It sounds like she is lucky to be alive. THis makes an excellent case for seat belts and on star.

It is just so frustrating to

It is just so frustrating to see our youths getting maimed and killed on the highways for lack of wearing a seatbelt. What will it take? They have to know of friends and classmates who've had a bad outcome for not wearing one.

Just thankful this woman survived I a and hope she has no long term injuries.
