A Grovetown teenager was not seriously injured in a single-car wreck Tuesday.
Samantha Moores, 17, of Fornum Drive, was taken to the Georgia Health Sciences University Medical Center with minor injuries after being extricated from her car.
At about 10:30 a.m., Moores was driving east on Wrightsboro Road near Reynolds Road, when her tires went off the road onto the shoulder, Columbia County sheriff’s Staff Sgt. Ray Childress said. Moores over-corrected and the Nissan 240SX spun into a ditch.
When the car hit the ditch, it flipped into a utility pole, crushing the roof, then landed back down into the ditch, Childress said.
It took Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue about 20 minutes to extricate her from the car by taking off the roof and windshield.
