Byromville, GA – Fatal Semi-Truck Accident at GA-90 & Main St
Byromville, GA (August 3, 2022) – One person sustained fatal injuries in a semi-truck accident at an intersection in Byromville on Monday morning, August 1.
Georgia Department of Transportation officials reported that the accident happened in the early morning hours at the intersection of GA-90 and Main Street. A semi-truck was traveling in the area when the driver suddenly struck a pole due to reasons that are not yet known. From there, a Chevy Silverado was unable to avoid the collision and slammed into the truck.
Several local responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. One person inside the Silverado, who has not yet been identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. The driver of the truck was injured but their condition is not yet known.
The roadway was blocked almost entirely in the area of the intersection, which led to delays for some time. Police worked to clear the scene as quickly as possible so traffic could return to normal.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident remains ongoing.
We offer our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the deceased victim at this time. We hope that the injured party will also receive a full recovery.
