An 18-year-old girl died tragically last week following a bizarre four-wheeler incident at Buckhead’s Callidora Ranch.
According to Morgan County Fire and Rescue Chief Jeff Stone, the teen was pronounced dead at Athens Piedmont Hospital on Wednesday, Sept. 8, one day after the four wheeler she was driving at the ranch with a passenger veered off a trail and struck a tree.
Stone said Emily Fowler, Conyers, and the female passenger were both ejected from the vehicle after it struck the tree. The passenger suffered scratches and bruises in the incident but was not transported by National EMS for treatment of her injuries.
Stone said Fowler and the passenger were both employees of the ranch and were riding the trail to begin cleanup work. The passenger told investigators that after the vehicle hit a few bumps, Fowler turned around to check on the passenger then began to veer off the trail. The passenger said she made a quick motion to get the driver’s attention but that failed and the vehicle struck the tree.
Stone said on Tuesday evening, Fowler became more responsive at Athens Piedmont but on Wednesday was rushed into emergency surgery for a brain issue and succumbed to the injuries. No charges were filed in the incident.
