More details being released on how the fatal accident on the Liberty Expressway occurred Saturday.
Sergeant Brewton of the Georgia State Patrol described the situation, Deborah Lynn Walls lost control of her silver Buick Regal, while driving north-bound on the expressway.
Walls then reportedly spun across the median and into oncoming south-bound traffic. An ambulance struck her and came to a stop in the grass on the opposite side of the highway.
Sergeant Brewton stated that Walls was pronounced dead at the scene, and details are still unclear as to how she lost control of the vehicle.
The ambulance contained three individuals, two paramedics and one paramedic student from Darton State College. All three were taken to Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital for minor injuries and released shortly after.
Sergeant Brewton has deemed the crash "unavoidable" for the ambulance driver.
Albany Police officers, Georgia State Patrol officers, EMS and Albany fire crews have responded to a serious accident on the Liberty Expressway headed southbound towards Nottingham Way.
All lanes are reportedly blocked at this time in both directions, and emergency crews are working to clear the accident. Early reports are that those involved in the crash have sustained serious injuries from the incident.
