At approximately 11:53 a.m., 62-year-old Kenneth Scarborough, of Columbus, Georgia, was driving a 1999 GMC Sierra northbound on Ga. 91 in Donalsonville.

The Georgia Department of Transportation reported that both lanes of Ga. 91 were shut down for about two hours after the crash to allow crews to tend to the victims and clear the wreckage.

Head-on vehicle collisions represent a small number of the accidents that occur every year in the United States, but they account for a larger percentage of traffic deaths in the country. About 2 percent of all the accidents in the U.S. involve head-on collisions, but these types of accidents cause approximately 10 percent of the nation’s crash-related deaths. Because of the force and nature of these accidents, they lead to more serious injuries and more deaths than many other types of vehicle accidents.
