Armuchee, GA – Man Killed in Fatal Head-on Collision on US-27

Armuchee, GA (April 22, 2022) – On Friday morning, April 22, a man was killed in a fatal head-on collision that took place in Armuchee. 

According to Floyd County officials, the accident happened on US-27 around the area of Old Summerville Road. Two vehicles were traveling in the area when one lost control, heading into the other lane of traffic. This caused the vehicles to forcefully collide head-on with each other. The vehicles involved in the accident sustained heavy damages. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One person involved in the accident, identified only as an elderly man, was severely injured and pronounced dead at the scene. It is not known if anyone else in the accident suffered from injuries. 

The roadway was blocked in the area of the accident for some time. It took police several hours to fully clear the scene so traffic could resume as normal. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues. 

We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
