Trailer unhitches, causing accident

Cordele — One woman was taken for treatment and a show hog died after a trailer carrying the animal came loose from its truck.

Officials with the Georgia State Patrol Post 30, Crisp County Sheriff's Office and Crisp County EMS responded to the accident, which took place on Highway 257 just past Smoakies Bar B-Que.

A young man was on the way to take his hog to the J.W. Mann Show Barn in preparation for tomorrow's Steer and Market Hog Show. He was traveling North on Highway 257 when the trailer transporting his hog became unhooked from the truck and rolled back until it was hit by an oncoming car.

A Crisp County woman, driving the car, was taken to Crisp Regional Hospital for injuries after complaining of facial pain from the impact of her car's airbag. Unfortunately the young man's hog was deceased at the scene.
