Wreck hospitalizes THS student

There has been another tragedy at Thomson High School.

Montrellous D. Ramsey, of the 500 block of Dell Drive, Thomson, remained in critical condition Monday -- several days after he was involved in a single-car wreck on Dallas Drive near Thomson, according to Trooper First Class Mark Cabe of the Georgia State Patrol post in Grovetown.

Mr. Ramsey is a 19-year-old senior at Thomson High School.

Trooper Cabe said the victim, who is being treated at Medical College of Georgia Hospital in Augusta, was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown into the back seat of his Ford Focus after he lost control while rounding a curve on Dallas Drive near Culpepper Drive about 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 20.

"He managed to crawl out the back windshield to get out," Trooper Cabe said.

Personnel with the McDuffie County Emergency Medical Services and firefighters/first responders with the McDuffie County Fire/Rescue Services rendered aid to Mr. Ramsey.

He was taken by ambulance to the Thomson-McDuffie Regional Airport, where a helicopter took him to the trauma center at MCG.

Trooper Cabe said Mr. Ramsey had "serious" head and other injuries.

The trooper said that after Mr. Ramsey lost control of his car he rotated clockwise into a second curve before striking a couple of mailboxes and crashing.

"The roof of the car was totally flattened," Trooper Cabe said.

Charges were still pending, he added.

A wreck on Mount Pleasant Road near Thomson killed a female student earlier this school year.

Earlier this month a school bus driver was killed after losing control of her bus.
