Fort Stewart Soldier Critically Injured in Motorcycle Wreck

A Fort Stewart soldier is in very bad shape tonight after flipping his motorcycle. Just after midnight, Hinesville troopers responded to the accident along Tibet Road. When they arrived, they found 18-year-old Ryan Rowan and 19-year-old passenger Deidra Shelton lying in the road.

Both were thrown from the bike after flipping several times and finally coming to rest 210 feet from where they wrecked.

Shelton was transferred to Liberty Regional, where she is in good condition. Rowen was flown to Memorial Health, where he is in critical condition.

Georgia State Patrol out of Hinesville said that speed played a factor in the wreck.
