A man was airlifted to Medical College of Georgia Hospital on Tuesday after swerving his vehicle into a ditch to avoid an oncoming car outside Harlem.
The wreck occurred around 4:30 p.m. on Gordon Highway at White Road, just west of the city limits, when a westbound white sports car crossed the center line and caused a blue Ford Explorer to swerve to avoid a collision.
The Explorer ran into the ditch and overturned. Its driver, Johnny Eugene Green of Dearing, was extricated by Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue personnel.
A passenger, Clifton Pressley, was taken to a hospital by ambulance with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. Two others in the Explorer, including a 2-year-old girl, were treated at the scene.
Authorities are looking for the driver of the white car for possible charges of leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
