The morning commute in Fayette, Georgia turned deadly on October 11, 2010. Shortly before 9 a.m., a car and an SUV collided at the intersection of Antioch Road and McBride Road.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office reports that 18-year-old Joshua Williams was driving a 1996 Nissan Altima on McBride Road and failed to stop for the stop sign at the intersection with Antioch Road. At the same time, a 2004 Toyota Sequoia SUV driven by 55-year-old James Buck was driving north on Antioch Road.
The two vehicles collided and the Sequoia overturned. Mr. Bucks was reportedly not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from his SUV. He was declared dead at the scene of the accident, according to the authorities.
Mr. Williams was taken by ambulance to Southern Regional Medical center with injuries. His passenger, 16-year-old James Massey, was also injured in the crash and he was taken by ambulance to Grady Memorial Hospital. Both Mr. Williams and Mr. Massey are expected to survive their accident injuries.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate this crash.
