      A rollover accident on US 19 South is causing a minor delay in Lee County.

      Officials with the Lee County Sheriff's Office day a female, possibly in her late 20's, lost control of the vehicle which caused her Chevy Trailblazer to flip over the side of the road and she was then ejected from the vehicle.

      The victim was conscious when officials arrived and was transported by EMS to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.

      Officials say they're looking into cellphone use as a possible explanation for the accident and urge drivers to be more careful on the roadway.

      Georgia State Patrol will continue to investigate the accident.
