Georgia State Patrol investigating fatal Worth County accident
Officials with the Georgia State Patrol says that one person has died and another life-flighted from the scene of an accident on Georgia Highway 112 North in Worth County.
GSP say they received the call from Worth 911 about 5:30 p.m. about the accident that involved two pickup trucks and a semi-truck.
GSP Senior Trooper Walter Spurlin confirms that 81-year-old Charles Lunsford has died as a result of his injuries after being air-lifted to Macon for treatment.
The death of 23-year-old Gregory Jacob Williams has also been confirmed to FOX 31; he is one of the drivers of a truck involved in the accident.
Charles Lunsford was driving west on Shingle Sumner Road. He attempted to turn left on Highway 112 when a tractor trailor driving north hit him on the driver side. At the same time, the truck driven by Williams, driving south, attempted to swerve but ended up hitting both vehicles head-on.
Spurlin says the cause of the accident is due to Lunsford failing to yield to the right of way.
The tractor trailer was driven by Gary Brinkley. Brinkley was transferred to Tift Regional Medical Center by ambulance where he was treated and released.
