Georgia College students dance for Children's Hospital


Georgia College students danced their hearts out to raise money for Children's Miracle Network.

Georgia College Miracle organizes the dance marathon every year to raise money for the Children's Hospital, Navicent Health.

About 300 students were locked in the school gym from noon to midnight, and danced throughout the night to raise money.

Kelsey Stone, executive director of Georgia College Miracle, got involved after her nephew was treated at the Children's Hospital.

"He actually spent the first 75 days of his life in the NICU at the Children's Hospital, Navicent Health, which is where all our money is going this year. So, through being at the hospital every day with my family and seeing how great they were, how awesome the hospital staff was, I just wanted to be able to give back in any way I could to the hospital that saved his life," said Stone.

One dead, 3 hospitalized in Milledgeville accident


One person is dead and three were rushed to the hospital after an accident involving a tractor trailer and two cars in Milledgeville.

The accident occurred just before 11 a.m. on East Hancock Street before the River Bridge across from the Salvation Army.

Baldwin County Coroner John Gonzales said he pronounced one person dead at the scene of the wreck. He has not released the victim's name yet.

One person was taken by ambulance to a Macon hospital while two others were taken to Oconee Regional Medical Center.

The tractor trailer was headed east on Hwy. 22 on the inside lane and a Nissan pickup towing a utility trailer was headed westbound, according to Georgia State Trooper Gerald Coffee.

A witness driving behind the tractor trailer told investigators that the Nissan suddenly turned into the tractor trailer's path, Coffee said, and the vehicles collided head on.
