Tragic Crash Reported in Macon County, Georgia (GA)

May 08, 2020

MACON COUNTY, GA- writes that a woman died this week in a tragic crash that occurred in Montezuma. The victim was identified as a woman who worked with the Montezuma Boys and Girls Club, and who was formerly a teacher with the Macon County School System. The police stated that she was also a volunteer who worked with a food bank in the area.*

Police confirmed that the woman died in a recent car crash, but declined to provide any details regarding how the collision occurred. The Police Chief spoke out about the victim, stating that she was someone who was always serving the community and offered his prayers to her family. The Montezuma Police Department is investigating the crash, along with the Georgia Motor Carrier Compliance. 

While early reports regarding traffic fatalities in Georgia indicate that the number of deaths declined in 2019 for the third year in a row, not all types of fatal crashes are dropping. Collisions that involve large trucks appear to have risen by one percent last year. The Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS) provides data to Congress regarding motor-vehicle deaths. Large trucks under the FARS system are any vehicles that weigh more than 10,000 pounds, whether privately operated or commercially. 

While truck fatalities are rising slightly, overall deaths on American roads dropped by an estimated 1.2 percent from 36,560 fatalities in 2018 to 36,120 deaths in 2019. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) separated the country into ten regions. Only one region in the country experienced a rise in fatal crashes in 2019. The region that sustained more deaths was in the southeast and included Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida.
