According to an online news report posted on, two men were tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident that occurred on Georgia Highway 316 in Oconee County, Georgia.*

The fatal motor vehicle accident occurred on Thursday night at approximately 6:10 p.m.  According to the Georgia State Patrol, the pickup truck accident along Georgia Highway 316 in front of the Mercedes-Benz dealership located on Virgil Langford Road in Oconee County, Georgia.

According to Ed Carson, of the Oconee County Coroner's Officer, the two victims identified were discovered and released.  The two victims, a 33-year-old man from Grayson and a 32-year-old man from Athens were tragically killed.
