A two car accident on Islands Highway near Beulah Road in East Liberty County sent four people to the hospital Dec. 26.  The accident occurred at 6:30 p.m.

According to Liberty County Fire services Chief, Brian Darby, firefighters found two vehicles which had collided at the intersection of Islands Highway and Beulah Road.  

Darby said a 12 year old child had been ejected when the vehicles collided tossing him roughly 25 feet onto a nearby lawn. Darby said the child sustained injuries to his shoulder and was transported via Life Star helicopter to Memorial Health University Medical Center.

The vehicle the child was ejected from, was driven by his 23 year old sister as well as their grandmother. The other vehicle contained a single occupant who was returning home from work at the Target distribution center in Tradeport East.

Georgia State Patrol Trooper, Marvin Frazier said the accident occurred when the woman made an initial stop at a stop sign on Beulah Road but strolled out and failed to yield to the oncoming vehicle heading eastbound. 

The impact caused the vehicle to spin around ejecting the child, who was wearing a seat belt, from the rear window.

The three other people were transported by ambulance.
