One person was airlifted to Medical College of Georgia Hospital Tuesday afternoon following a hit-and-run crash just outside Harlem.
The crash 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 airlifted to MCG after being extricated from the vehicle by Martinez-Columbia Fire Rescue personnel.
Of three other passengers in the Explorer, Clifton Pressley was taken to an area hospital by ground ambulance with injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. Carolyn Green and a 2-year old female were treated at the scene.
Authorities are looking for the white car and its driver for leaving the scene of an accident with injuries.
Tammy Shannon said she was driving behind the Explorer and also was forced to swerve because of the oncoming white vehicle. By the time the white car had come across the line the Explorer had already run into the ditch, and flipped when the driver attempted to pull back onto the road.
