44-Year-Old Man Killed in Vehicle Wreck in Troup County, Georgia
TROUP COUNTY, GA. – A 44-year-old man was killed in a vehicle wreck in Troup County, Georgia, according to a news story reported online by wrbl.com. The driver of the other vehicle involved reportedly missed a stop sign at Highway 109.*
A Toyota Scion XB was traveling on Georgia Highway 109 in Troup County. At the intersection with Rock Mills Road, the driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe failed to stop at a stop sign and drove into the intersection, where it crashed into the Scion.
Three people were riding in the Scion at the time of the crash. A passenger, 44-year-old George Green was killed in the accident. Green’s wife, Angela Green, and their 10-year-old son were injured in the wreck, and a medical helicopter was called to the scene to fly them to a hospital in Atlanta.
Angela Green reportedly sustained broken ribs and internal injury but is expected to recover. The child sustained a head injury and is reportedly doing well.
The driver of the Tahoe has only been identified by Georgia State Patrol as an 80-year-old man. It is not clear if he was injured in the accident. Authorities are conducting a toxicology analysis, as required for all fatal collisions in Georgia, and they are still in the process of completing their investigation. The driver has not been charged at this time.
Relatives of the Green family are devastated by the loss and are trying to cope while supporting Angela Green and the Greens’ son.
“The hardest thing about this is that it was a violent end,” said Robert Wright, George Green’s cousin. “It’s also a horrible waste of his life, that he had to die of a car accident and of someone missing a stop sign of all things.”
