One injured in 1 of 2 roll-over wrecks

POSTED: August 4, 2007 8:07 a.m.
A rollover accident along Highway 84 left one person with injuries, and another rollover accident on South Main Street left a young father slightly shaken with his infant daughter, both occurring within days of each other according to Hinesville Police traffic investigator Lt. Max McLendon.

July 13
Friday the 13th proved unlucky for Dustan Glenn Korte and Jason McGregor, who serve with the 546th Military Police Division at Fort Stewart.
According to Hinesville Police Lt. Max McLendon, Korte was driving north on Highway 84 in the right-hand lane when he dropped something, reached down to pick it up and momentarily took his eyes off the road.
When he looked up again, he saw a car stopped in front of him and took action to avoid hitting the vehicle.
As he swerved, Korte lost control of his 2006 blue Chevy Cobalt and crossed into oncoming traffic on Highway 84 drove over the island curb at the corner of Highway 84 and East Court Street, damaging the decorative brush in the process, and ended up in a grassy area just in front of the First Presbyterian Church. The vehicle ended up on its side, facing in the opposite direction of its destination, McLendon said.
McGregor, a passenger in the vehicle, was taken by Liberty EMS to Winn Army Hospital to be treated for injuries.
The incident is still under investigation and possible charges are pending.

July 16
William Greenlee of Hinesville and his infant daughter were driving north on South Main Street, in their 2001 gold Chevy Malibu, when a vehicle exiting the Victory MHP turned onto Main in front of them and suddenly stopped. Greenlee swerved into oncoming traffic to avoid the rear end collision and then swerved back to the right to prevent a head-on collision with oncoming traffic.
According to McLendon the sharp and quick turn back and forth caused the vehicle to skid and when the vehicle’s tires hit dirt the motion of the tires stopped and the vehicle rolled on its side.
Luckily, Greenlee’s infant daughter was securely strapped in a child safety seat and other than a few frayed nerves, both father and daughter sustained no injuries. The driver of the vehicle who turned in front of Greenlee left the scene.
