MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man remains hospitalized in Thomasville after he was injured in a one-car accident Saturday afternoon in Colquitt County.
The Georgia State Patrol (GSP) said Otis Williams, 53, of Moultrie, was seriously injured and taken to Archbold Medical Center in Thomasville. A hospital spokesperson there said he was listed in serious condition as of Tuesday afternoon.
Williams was driving a Dodge Dynasty on Livingston Bridge Road around a curve about 4:10 p.m. Saturday, and the GSP said he went off the roadway as he went around the curve. The Dynasty drove over a private driveway,
hitting the car’s undercarriage and continued driving off of the roadway.
The Dynasty drove over a second private driveway, hitting the undercarriage again, the GSP said. The second driveway caused the car to go airborne, and it rotated onto the driver’s left side as it flew through the air.
The GSP said the Dynasty came down into a ditch, hitting with the front driver’s side into the ditch. Williams was ejected from the car as it rotated clockwise as it overturned. The car hit a culvert with its back end, causing it to vault over one complete vault before landing in the ditch on its roof, facing north.
When the GSP trooper arrived, he found Williams had been seriously injured, and he was taken to Archbold by Colquitt County EMS. He was cited for a seatbelt violation and failure to maintain lane, and he will be charged with DUI pending the results of a blood test.
