February 04, 2019

MACON, GA. – As reported online by a news story from wgxa.tv, a vehicle ran off the road and overturned in Macon, Georgia, on January 29. Little information about the incident has been reported at this time, and it is not clear if anyone was injured in the accident.* 

The accident occurred sometime in the afternoon on January 29, but reports did not indicate exactly what time. A vehicle was traveling south on Interstate 475 in Macon-Bibb County, Georgia, and somehow traveled off the roadway. The vehicle then overturned. 

The make and model of the vehicle were not included in reports. Photos from the scene show what appears to be an SUV turned on its side in a wooded area off the side of the interstate. A tow truck is on site in the photos, ready to remove the vehicle from the scene.

It is not clear how the accident occurred. It does not appear any other vehicles were involved. The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies responded to the scene, but authorities did not provide any potential explanations for the crash or any contributing factors that they might look into during their investigation. 

The driver of the vehicle has not been identified by officials. It is not clear if anyone else was in the vehicle in addition to the driver. Officials did not say whether anyone was injured in the accident. Emergency responders were called to the scene, but it is not clear if anyone was transported to a hospital. 

The accident caused one lane of I-475 South to be closed while crews investigated and cleared the scene. Drivers were encouraged during this time to either find an alternate route to avoid the area or to proceed through the area carefully.
