Four-Year-Old Dies in Tragic Crash in Grady County, Georgia
GRADY COUNTY, GA- Wctv.tv writes that a horrible collision killed a four-year-old and injured three others this week in Grady County, Georgia. The incident occurred at the intersection of Georgia 262 and Highway 112 between a passenger vehicle and a semi-truck. Police are telling drivers that they need to slow down in the area.*
A man who works near the site of the tragic incident said he arrived just after the crash occurred in the early afternoon and saw the aftermath. He said people were trying to save the driver and the two surviving children. The witness has an EMT certification and helped to extract the woman from her vehicle. Sadly, he said that nothing could be done at that point to save the child.
Another local stated that the scene was not the first of its kind at the intersection. He stated that he has lived in the area for nearly two decades and witnessed numerous collisions at the intersection. He said the victim and family lived nearby and had only recently moved to the area.
Other locals also say the intersection is bad, but that many of the problems are the result of distracted drivers and people looking at their phones and not the road. The crossroads is controlled by a stop sign.
Updates on the story indicate that the woman is still in critical condition and that both of the other children are now considered stable. Doctors stated that they are still paying close attention to the condition of one of the children.
Police are treating the collision as a distracted driver accident. It is unclear at this time whether any charges are pending.
