Teen Hurt in Macon County Crash

A teenager from Atlanta was seriously injured in a crash last night near Elmer. Highway patrol reports indicate 16-year old Kailin Dunham was airlifted to University Medical Center in Columbia following the 7:15pm accident, which happened on Fountain Street a mile North of Elmer. She was riding with 13-year old Tyler Thurman on a Yamaha Raptor ATV and had stopped in the road for a moment. A 2001 GMC Pickup driven by 27-year old Jeremy Jarman hit the stopped ATV from behind, causing it to overturn. Both Thurman and Dunham were thrown off the four-wheeler. He suffered only minor injuries.
