Tifton, GA (November 21, 2020) – Early in the morning hours on Sunday, one person was killed in a fatal crash in Tift County, per reports from the Georgia State Patrol.
A 22-year-old woman of Dallas, Georgia, was in the front passenger seat and was partially ejected from a vehicle involved in a two-car crash. She was transported to an area medical center about 90 minutes after the wreck, but paramedics said that her injuries were fatal.
A report from the Georgia State Patrol showed that the other individual involved in the crash, a man, was driving a 2008 Ford F-250 pickup truck south on Adams Road. Police say that he failed to maintain his lane and traveled into the ditch on the west shoulder of Adams Road, hitting the woman’s vehicle in the process.
The man, of North Augusta, South Carolina, was arrested by Georgia State Troopers on the same day as the accident. He has been charged with felony homicide by vehicle in the first degree, driving under the influence, and failure to maintain the lane.
The GSP Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team will be continuing the investigation, and police say their investigation into the circumstances of the accident remains ongoing.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
