Whenever rescue crews have to deal with an accident scene involving a child or baby, things can get tenuous. Nobody ever wants to see someone injured in a car crash, but when that person is an infant, it can be heartbreaking. Sadly, this was the case in Wrens, Georgia this past week.
On Monday, March 2, police responded to a serious accident this past week in Wrens, Georgia. The accident happened at about 1:30 pm on Kings Mill Road. The driver of a vehicle was traveling Southbound on the road when she lost control of her car. She ended up hitting a light pole and her car eventually flipped upside down. It was upside down when the police arrived at the scene.
The driver of the vehicle, whose name has not yet been released, and her child were ejected from the car. The driver’s baby was just 3-weeks old and was in the back seat of the car. Apparently, authorities say that she was not properly restrained in her car seat. The child’s name was Raelyn Gilmore.
The mother and bay were rushed to AU Medical Center. So was the third person who was a passenger in the vehicle at the time of the crash.
