Fitzgerald, GA – One Killed in Fatal Truck Crash on Old Whitley Rd

Fitzgerald, GA (March 11, 2022) – A woman was killed in a fatal truck crash that took place in Fitzgerald on Friday morning, March 11. 

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the accident happened at the intersection of Old Whitley Road and VoTech Drive. A semi-truck was traveling east at the intersection while a passenger vehicle was headed south. The driver of the semi did not stop at the stop sign. The vehicle also entered the intersection, colliding with the side of the trailer that was being pulled by the truck.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The driver of the passenger vehicle, identified as a 33-year-old woman from Valdosta, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene due to severe injuries. Nobody else was hurt in the accident. 

Due to the severity of the accident, the roadway was blocked at the intersection for some time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery. 

Truck Accidents in Georgia

Truck accidents are some of the most catastrophic accidents that occur on our roads in Georgia. In 2014, approximately 1,164 people were killed in Georgia accidents, with handfuls of these accidents involving large trucks. These accidents are so commonly fatal and severe due to the fact that trucks are the largest vehicles that navigate our roads. This means that those in smaller vehicles do not have much in the way of protection when it comes to these accidents.
