Georgia student photographer injured in sidelined collision, carted off

Georgia student photographer

A student photographer was injured in a collision on the sidelines of the Auburn-Georgia game in Auburn on Saturday and taken off the field on a stretcher.

Late in the second quarter of the game, the student photographer who was shooting near the 5-yard line was effectively run over on the sideline at Jordan-Hare Stadium after a pass near the sideline.

CBS’ sideline reporter Jamie Erdahl initially reported that she hadn’t seen the photographer move. A subsequent report stated the woman had opened her eyes and was responding.

Erdahl reported that the student photographer had a visible bruise on her right eye. The woman received cheers as she was carted off the field on the stretcher and into a tunnel.

When the game resumed after halftime, Erdahl reported that the student was an intern for the Georgia athletic department and was taken to East Alabama Medical Center.

UPDATE: The photographer was later identified as Chamberlain Smith, and she was released from the hospital on Saturday night.
