Local doctor killed in car crash

Memorial Services are set for Saturday for a local doctor killed in a car crash earlier this week.

Dr. David Wheeler, age 53, who practiced medicine in the Highlands-Cashiers area, was killed in an automobile accident late Monday night, November 26, in Towns County Ga.

Despite a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed in 1999, Dr. Wheeler continued to practice medicine, working at Highlands-Cashiers Hospital, and at his family practice in Cashiers.

Dr. Wheeler will be remembered with a service Saturday, December 1, at 7:00 p.m. at Highlands United Methodist Church.
