A wreck involving a Long County man, and a woman, who was traveling with three passengers, appears to be alcohol related, according to Georgia State Patrol, Trooper William Bowman.
According to Ludowici/Long County Dispatcher Alan Rhoden a call of a wreck involving two vehicles on Rye Patch Road was reported this Sunday at 12:30 p.m.
The Georgia State Patrol arrived and, according to Bowman, John Kenneth Wells was driving his 1998 Ford F-150 south and Brittany Nicole Alonzo was driving her 1996 Dodge Intrepid north.
Bowman said it appears that Wells veered off the west shoulder of the road, and then overcompensated as he pulled back on the road, apparently striking the Intrepid on the other side of the road and causing Alonzo to lose control.
Bowman said that at this point Alonzo ran off the road, into a wood line and struck a tree. Wells lost control of his truck, also ending up in the woods.
Long County and Liberty County EMS were called, and both Bowman and Wells were taken for treatment. In addition to the drivers, three passengers, who were with Alonzo, also were transported for treatment.
The condition of the injured persons had not been released at the time of this story.
Bowman said Wells was at fault and that alcohol appeared to be involved.
Other agencies responding to the call included the Ludowici/Long County Fire Department and the Long County Sheriff's Department.
