BARTOW COUNTY, GA – April 24, 2018 (coosavalleynews.com).  According to an online news report from coosavalleynews.com, a woman from Rome named Donna Misti Kirkland tragically died on Tuesday, April 24, 2018 as a result of a serious accident on U.S. 411 in Bartow County.*

According to the incident report, the accident, which was reported to 911 at approximately 7:30 a.m., happened on U.S. 411 east close to Hardin Bridge Road near Kingston.  Authorities provide that a 2015 Ram pickup driven by Martina Nanette Couey of Cartersville, Georgia was going on U.S. 411 west. A 2017 Ford F350 driven by thirty six year old Kenneth Nathanial Ritchie from Rome and a 2011 Kia Soul, driven by a woman, Misti Kirtland, were both going east. 

Officials state that the Dodge was “driving too fast for conditions and failed to maintain its lane when it traveled across the median and into the eastbound lanes. The truck proceeded to hit the Ford and continued to travel westbound on the eastbound side where it crashed into the Kia.”

At this time, it has been reported that Couey was taken to a local hospital for treatment while the driver of the F350 was not injured in the collision.  It is not known as to the status of the driver of the Kia Soul.
