(UPDATED): Two HHS students involved in rollover crash

(UPDATE: The Heard Citizen spoke with Carlton White Sunday morning and he is back at home and doing better with only minor injuries)

(Franklin, GA) — Two Heard County High School students were involved in a rollover accident on U.S. Hwy 27 Thursday afternoon just south of Franklin.

According to a report by the Georgia State Patrol, 19-year-old senior Carlton White was airlifted to Grady Hospital with serious injuries following the single vehicle crash.

A female passenger in the car, sophomore HHS student Navaeh McKinley, walked away and was not seriously injured.

Reports indicate a 2005 Hyundai Elantra driven by White was traveling southbound on U.S. 27 when for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle.

After losing control, the vehicle eventually ended up rolling over and came to a rest upside down in the median of 27 near the intersection of Byrd Road.

    My strength is now their strength.
    God bless them.
