Columbus wreck: Three women sent to hospital after I-185 wreck

Three women were sent to the hospital after a one-vehicle wreck on Interstate 185 early this morning.

The wreck happened in the northbound lanes near mile marker 38 around 6 a.m., said Carmen Scarborough with the Georgia State Patrol.

“The subject apparently fell asleep and went into an area that had some shrubbery stumps,” Scarborough said.The first time the SUV flipped, one of the passengers was ejected. The second time it flipped, the other passenger was thrown from the vehicle, Scarborough said.

The driver wasn’t thrown from the SUV.

All three were taken to a Columbus hospital. The northbound lanes were closed for about two hours.

“To my knowledge, they are in very serious condition,” Scarborough said.
