An elderly Florida man and his son, apparently vacationing together, were injured in a wreck Wednesday on I-95 in Liberty County.
According to Georgia State Patrol Cpl. Barbara Brewton, it appeared the driver, Adrian Dawson, 80, lost control of his vehicle.
Dawson and his son, Bert Alan Dawson, 54, both from Sebring, Fla., were in a white Ford 150 pickup that was towing a Coleman trailer and a small trailer loaded with a golf cart.
According to witnesses, the truck was traveling northbound in the far right lane when the camper began  swaying  left to right.
Brewton said the driver told he he believed wind caused  the swaying.
Initial reports from witnesses indicate the driver was traveling normally and was not speeding.
The vehicle veered onto the right shoulder and grassy area before shifting to the left, crossing all three lanes to the left and flipping. A small trailer and golf cart separated from the camper and ended up in the grass on the right shoulder  while the truck and RV ended up on their sides blocking the two left lanes of traffic.
Both men were transported to a Savannah hospital by Liberty County EMS. One of the men reportedly sustained serious injuries while the other suffered minor injuries.
J.T. Jones Wrecker Service out of Riceboro responded to the scene and towed away the camper and truck.
Northbound traffic on I-95 between exits 76 and 87 was tied up for nearly  two hours as workers removed debris.
The wreck is still under investigation.
