15-year-old ejected from car in accident on Mike Padgett Highway

Six people are in the hospital Saturday, including a 15-year-old who was ejected through a window, after an accident on Mike Padgett Highway, authorities said.

Just before 8 p.m., a Toyota SUV hit a Dodge truck while trying to make a left turn off Old Savannah Road onto Mike Padgett Highway.

An 15-year-old girl, who was not wearing her seatbelt, went through the right back window of the SUV, landing not far from the vehicle, Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Robbie Silas said.

All five people in the SUV and the driver of the truck were taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Silas said.
