A bad wreck on in the 2800 block of Liberty Expressway slowed traffic down Saturday.

Dougherty County Police tell FOX 31 that a white Ford Explorer was traveling North when the driver lost control, panicked, slammed on the brakes which then caused the driver to run off the road, flip and become airborne for about 60 feet.

Lt. M.J. Wood with the Dougherty County Police says if your vehicle happens to ever run off the road, you must remain calm.

There were three passengers in the car.

None of them were seriously hurt but all three passengers were sent to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for closer inspections.
