The two critical occupants were airlifted to an Atlanta trauma center by helicopter, and the two others were transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital by ground ambulance.


Four Newnan High School students were injured in a single-vehicle accident Thursday morning, and at least two were listed in critical condition.

Emergency units with the Coweta County Fire Department, Coweta Sheriff’s Office and Coweta Emergency Medical Service responded to the accident on Corinth Road near the Blalock Lakes neighborhood southwest of Newnan and found the vehicle wrapped around a tree, said Deputy Fire Chief Todd Moore. The vehicle appeared to lose control and veer off the road where it collided with a tree on the driver’s side.

All four occupants were entrapped, Moore said, and both the driver and front seat passenger were found in critical condition with multi-system trauma. The two critical occupants were airlifted to an Atlanta trauma center by helicopter, and the two others were transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital by ground ambulance.
