A 19-year-old Rockmart woman, Alyssa Jackson, has been charged with DUI after a wreck that sent her and three others, including a juvenile boy, to the hospital with serious injuries.
Reports said Jackson was driving her Nissan Sentra south on Shiflett Road when her car left the shoulder and went down an embankment, flipped numerous times, and landed on the hood. The vehicle came to a stop near a driveway at 6390 Rockmart Road.
The front seat passenger, Malorie Bradfield, 19 of Rockmart, was sent to a local hospital with serious injuries. She is listed in stable condition.
A backseat passenger, Aaron Tanner, was taken to Floyd Medical Center where he is listed in critical condition Monday.
Reports went on to say that a 16-year-old male juvenile was airlifted to Scottish Rite hospital in Atlanta with life-threatening injuries.
Both males were ejected.
Jackson has been treated and released from Floyd Medical Center.
Jackson was charged with DUI. Additional charges are pending.
Georgia State law also requires a clinical evaluation and the attendance of a DUI / Risk Reduction Program that’s certified/licensed by the Georgia Department of Driver’s Services before your driver’s license can be reinstated if you have been charged with any of the following:
- Drug Possession
- Other drug offenses
- Under-age possession of drugs or alcohol
Before getting behind the wheel after having a few, consider the many reasons why you should not.
