Four Deaths Reported in Richmond County, Georgia (GA)


July 09, 2020

RICHMOND COUNTY, GA- The augustachronicle.com writes that four people died in accidents in Richmond County this week, leading to multiple county coroner investigations.* 

The first incident occurred when a car struck a 40-year-old man on Olive Road. Responders rushed the man to the AU Medical Center for treatment of multiple blunt force injuries, but the victim was declared dead the following day. 

The second death was the result of a fire that happened in late June. The victim, identified as an eighteen-year-old man, suffered smoke inhalation and burn injuries in the incident, which occurred at a home on Fayetteville Drive. The teen was being treated at the AU Medical Center but was later transferred to a specialized burn center. Sadly, the teen passed away this week from the smoke inhalation injuries he suffered in the fire. 

A 46-year-old woman from Grovetown who was involved in a car crash in May died this from blunt force trauma injuries. The collision took place on Washington Road, and the victim was being treated for her injuries at the AU Medical Center until she passed away. 

The fourth victim died in a head-on collision this week on Mike Padgett Highway. The crash occurred when a northbound car entered the southbound lanes striking the vehicle in which the victim was traveling. Reports indicate that the victim was a 35-year-old woman from Martinez. Responders declared the woman dead at the scene of the crash. 

According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, 1,507 people lost their lives in traffic incidents in the state last year. Fires killed 3,655 nationally in 2018, indicating an increase of more than twenty percent compared to 2009.
