Eatonton, GA (October 4, 2022) – Around 8 a.m. on the morning of Tuesday, October 4, a man was killed in a fatal head-on collision at an intersection in Eatonton. 

Police in Putnam County confirmed that the accident happened in the early morning hours at the intersection of Harmony Road and Scott Road. A deputy was sitting in his vehicle on patrol when he suddenly saw two vehicles become involved in a collision. Police confirmed that 26-year-old Jermaine Mathis was traveling east in his Kia Optima when he was involved in a head-on collision with a BMW 335 being operated by 26-year-old Demarkeo Towles. Both vehicles were extensively damaged in the accident. 

Several responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. Mathis was rushed to Putnam General Hospital with traumatic injuries but was tragically pronounced dead while there. Towles was flown to a hospital in Macon by medical helicopter but his current condition is not yet known. 

Due to the severity of the accident, a large portion of the road was blocked in the area for a period of time. Police worked to clear the scene as quickly as possible. 

No further details have been released but the investigation continues. 

We would like to offer our warmest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time. We also hope that the injured party receives a speedy recovery.
