THOMAS COUNTY, GA. – A New Year’s Eve wreck in Thomas County, Georgia, left the driver of a vehicle dead, according to ab online news report from wctv.com. The cause of the crash is not yet clear.* 

The wreck occurred at the intersection of Georgia-Florida Parkway and the Thomasville Bypass in Thomas County. Georgia State Patrol Troopers arrived on the scene to find a couple in a truck with minor injuries and the driver of a car deceased. It is not clear whether the truck occupants were transported anywhere for treatment. No names have been released at this time. 

“Knowing it’s a fatality makes it so much more important,” said Trooper Jamill Curry. “Everybody wants answers, and family members are crying about who was in the car. That’s hard to tell the family.”
