High School Teacher Killed in Vehicle Crash in Cuthbert, Georgia
CUTHBERT, GA. – A high school teacher was killed in a vehicle crash in Cuthbert, Georgia, according to a news story published online by ledger-enquirer.com. Few details about the nature and cause of the crash, which happened on Po Diddy Road, have been released to the public at this time.*
The accident happened in the evening on February 10, and authorities alerted the media and identified the victim on February 13. At approximately 7:45 p.m. on February 10, two vehicles collided on Po Diddy Road in Cuthbert, near the line between Talbot County, Georgia, and Upson County, Georgia.
It is not clear at this time how the crash happened. One of the vehicles involved was a Lincoln Town Car, but the other vehicle involved was not described in reports. Georgia State Patrol went to the scene to investigate, and Troopers did not report information about the circumstances leading up to the accident.
The driver of the Lincoln was not wearing a seat belt, according to Troopers, and he was ejected from his vehicle during the crash. He sustained critical injuries, and emergency crews took him to a hospital for treatment. He sadly died from his injuries at the hospital about two hours after the collision.
The Talbot County Coroner’s Office identified the driver of the Lincoln as a 54-year-old mathematics teacher at Cuthbert’s Randolph-Clay High School.
Troopers said the driver of the second vehicle was also injured and transported to a nearby hospital. This person has not been identified, and the nature of his or her injuries was not released. It does not appear any passengers were in the second vehicle, either.
