Jackson, GA – Carolyn Bingham Killed in Pedestrian Crash on GA-16

Jackson, GA (March 23, 2022) – On Tuesday, March 22, a woman was killed in a fatal pedestrian crash on a roadway in Jackson. 

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the accident happened on GA-16 near the local Ingle’s. A female pedestrian was walking in the area when she started to cross the street. At the same time, a tractor-trailer in the area was unable to stop in time. The driver struck her as she was walking across the street. Police confirmed that the tractor-trailer was headed east approaching Imogene Goff Road at the time. The driver remained at the scene. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other local responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The pedestrian, identified as 60-year-old Carolyn Bingham, was rushed to Sylvan Grove Hospital with traumatic injuries but was pronounced dead around noon. The driver of the truck, identified as Alton Brothers, was not hurt in the accident. 

Due to the severity of the collision, the roadway was blocked in the area for a period of time. Police quickly worked to clear the scene. 

No further details have been released. The investigation into the accident remains ongoing. 

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