      Accident takes out Tifton gas station

      A Tifton man is lucky to be alive after he passed out behind the wheel and drove into a gas station.

      Around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning officials say 23-year-old Brad Dotson was experiencing severe back pain when he passed out while driving a dump truck.

      The truck struck a utility pole and then rammed into the JM Foodmart parking lot hitting gas pumps and the roof. The Tifton Fire Department was called to extinguish a fire that began because of the accident.

      Dotson was taken to Tift Regional Hospital for observation
