January 05, 2019

MORGAN COUNTY, GA – A woman was killed in a crash with a fire truck in Morgan County, Georgia, according to an online news report from morgancountycitizen.com. Officials have not yet released details regarding the cause of the crash.*

The crash occurred at the intersection of Main Street and the State Route 24/441 Madison Bypass in Morgan County. A police report indicates a Morgan County Fire and Rescue truck was traveling east on Main Street with its lights and siren activated. When it entered the intersection with State Route 24, a southbound Volvo struck the driver’s side of the truck. The fire truck spun on impact and hit a northbound Nissan that was stopped on State Route 24. 

A firefighter in the truck, Robert Kapp, sustained fractures to his ribs and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. He has since been discharged. It is not clear whether Kapp was driving the fire truck. 

The driver of the Volvo, 67-year-old Kimberly Kimins, of Savannah, Georgia, was seriously injured and transported to Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital. Kimins sadly died of her injuries at the hospital. 

It is not clear whether anyone in the Nissan was injured. Georgia State Patrol is leading the investigation of the accident, and Morgan County Fire and Rescue said no additional information was available.

“At this point, we are waiting for the investigation to come out before we speculate what happened,” said Fire and Rescue Chief Jeff Stone. “Our biggest concern right now is for our injured firefighter and the family of the lady who lost her life … The circumstances [of the accident] will come out later on, but right now, all we can do is pray for these two families.”
