About 4:20 p.m., a Honda sport utility vehicle veered off Ray Owens Road in front of North Columbia Elemen­tary School, according to Columbia County sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris. The vehicle ran through a ditch and hit a tree.

There were two people in the SUV – the driver, Marina Middlebrook, and a female toddler in the back seat, Morris said. Middle­brook, 27, was airlifted to Geor­gia Regents Medical Center, where she was in surgery Thursday night, Morris said. There was no further information on the toddler.

So Sad

Half a mile from where I live. I saw the helicopter and heard all the sirens.

Hmmmm

From the photo and the condition of the driver, it would appear that the airbag did not deploy.

Sad

it would appear that the mother's eyes were diverted off of the road for some reason. They just did a segment on one of the news shows about how many mothers look away from the road with children in the back seat. I pray that they will both recover.
