Two people are dead and another two injured following a crash on Highway 221 in McDuffie County on Friday, police say.

About 1 p.m., Georgia State Patrol and McDuffie County Emergency Services crews were called to a two-vehicle wreck in south McDuffie County.

According to Ritchie Howard, the Grovetown post commander for the Georgia State Patrol, a small passenger vehicle was traveling north on Highway 221 when it left the roadway, over-corrected and ran head-on into a tractor trailer.

Two adult passengers, who have not been identified, were killed in the collision. A 1-year-old child was airlifted to Georgia Regents Medical Center with a head injury, and the driver of the tractor trailer was taken by ambulance to an area hospital.

I cannot say anything but

I cannot say anything but, what a sad way to start a weekend. So sorry for the loss of 2 people and for the injuries this baby has sustained. Pray that everyone knows that God is in control and I surely hope this baby will be ok.
