Franklin County General District Court Judge George Jones was airlifted to Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital after a traffic accident on North Main Street Thursday afternoon.

Dr. Charles Lane, the medical director for the Franklin County Department of Public Safety who treated Jones at the scene, said Jones was in critical condition.

Jones was traveling south on North Main in a 2006 Chevrolet Impala when he had a medical emergency and lost control of the vehicle, according to Cpl. T.J. Robertson with the Rocky Mount Police Department.

The Impala struck a parked vehicle, pushing it into two more vehicles, Robertson said. Then the Impala rolled back down the hill and struck two additional vehicles parked at the restaurant.

Robertson and Stephanie Hodges, a nurse at Carilion Franklin Memorial Hospital, performed CPR until paramedics and Lane arrived at the scene.

Jones was transported to Franklin Memorial and airlifted to Roanoke Memorial.

The accident is under investigation.
