A plea from a New Jersey man who was severely injured in a crash in Douglas County.

He hopes someone who may have been an eyewitness will contact troopers.

A picture was taken shortly after the Saturday morning crash shows the scene.

It happened on Highway 166 around 6 a.m.

That's about three hours before Paul Penamon needed to be at the airport to fly home.

He says a car crossed the center lane and hit him head-on.

Penamon suffered several injuries including a broken femur, collapsed lung, and five broken ribs.

He says he was told a man witnessed the crash but did not get to speak with investigators.

FOX 5 News reached out to the Georgia State Patrol to find out about charges and the other driver's condition but did not hear back from them as of Wednesday afternoon.
