Soldier Dies from Injuries Sustained in Motorcycle Wreck

A Fort Stewart soldier has died from his injuries after flipping his motorcycle. Just after midnight on Tuesday, troopers responded to the accident along Tibet Road in Hinesville. When they arrived, they found 18-year-old Ryan Rowen and 19-year-old passenger Deidra Shelton lying in the road.

LifeStar airlifted the Rowen to Memorial Health in Savannah, where he later died.

Paramedics rushed Shelton to Liberty Regional Medical Center, where she is in good condition.

Georgia state troopers say that speed was a factor.
