BULLOCH CO., GA (WTOC) - Two crashes in Southern Bulloch County Thursday morning sent two people to the hospital and slowed down traffic during the morning commute for others traveling on Highway 80.

It happened shortly before 6:30 a.m. on Highway 80 near Robertson Road east of Brooklet. Georgia State Patrol troopers tell us one car left the road and rolled onto its roof. The driver told troopers the crash happened when he tried to pick up something he dropped.

The second crash happened on about 50 yards away from the first crash when a driver attempted to pass eastbound traffic and collided with another vehicle.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating both wrecks.
