GUYTON, GA (WTOC) - Four teenagers are expected to recover after their pickup collided with a tractor trailer.

It happened in Effingham County at 11:15 pm at the intersection of Ga. Highway 17 and Porter Road in Guyton, Ga.

Authorities said the driver of the pickup turned into the path of the 18-wheeler. The driver of the semi truck was not hurt.

Effingham County sheriff's deputies and Georgia state troopers blocked off a section of Highway 17 for several hours overnight so Georgia Power could replace a pole damaged in the wreck.

The teens were taken to the hospital to be treated.
