Driver Injured in Head-on Collision

One man is in the hospital after an accident on Ogeechee Road in Chatham County tied up traffic during rush hour. Hundreds of drivers were stuck after a man driving a pickup truck crashed head-on into a cement truck on Ogeechee Road near Interstate 516 about 4:30pm yesterday afternoon.

Investigators say the pickup truck driver somehow drifted across the centerline before slamming into the cement truck. Southside firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to get the driver of the pickup out of the wreckage. He was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police say he faces charges in the accident. His name and condition have not yet been released.
