 A Long County teenager had to be airlifted to a Savannah hospital Sunday after the four-wheeler he rode collided with a van on Stewart Hodges Loop. According to Long County Sheriff’s Department deputies, the van and the four-wheeler collided head on at about 1 p.m. Sunday. The driver of the four-wheeler, a 16-year-old boy, hit the windshield of the van, while his passenger, a 14-year-old girl, was thrown off the vehicle. Neither teen wore a helmet. Both teens were taken to Memorial Health Medical Center, the boy by LifeStar, the girl by ambulance.The driver of the van, Walthorville resident John Middleton, said he tried to avoid hitting the teens but by the time he saw them, it was too late. Officials said speed did not seem to be the cause of accident, which is still under investigation. Information on the teens’ condition was not available Monday.
