Authorities Indicate that Drugs May Have Contributed to Deadly Walton County Accident

May 15, 2019

WALTON COUNTY, GEORGIA – As reported online by, drugs may have played a role in a tragic multi-vehicle accident that left two women dead.*

Just after 5:00 p.m., a three-vehicle accident left two women dead, and one other person with minor injuries. Details released by the Georgia State Patrol (GSP) indicate that a 37-year-old woman driving a Ford Escort allegedly failed to yield after stopping at a stop sign at the intersection of Georgia 11 and Bold Springs Road, causing the three-vehicle accident.

According to the GSP, the Escort was traveling eastbound on Bold Springs Road when the 37-year-old driver of the vehicle pulled out in front of a Chevrolet Tahoe traveling southbound on Georgia 11. Reports indicate that the Tahoe had the right-of-way.  The Tahoe was unable to avoid a collision with the Escort, striking the driver’s side. The impact of this initial collision sent the Escort into the northbound lane of Georgia 11, where the vehicle collided with a cement truck.

Unfortunately, both the 37-year-old driver of the escort and her 53-year-old passenger, both women from Monroe, tragically died from their injuries. The driver of the Tahoe only sustained minor injuries, and the driver of the cement truck did not sustain any injuries.

Authorities have determined that the 37-year-old driver of the Escort may have been under the influence of drugs when the accident happened.  However, details regarding what type or amount of drugs have not been released.
