3/9 Macon, GA – Severe Car Accident at Burton Ave & Winifred Way Intersection

Macon, GA (March 9, 2023) – Two people sustained severe injuries in a car accident that happened at a Macon intersection on Wednesday afternoon, March 8.

According to Bibb County officials, the accident happened around 4 p.m. at the intersection of Burton Avenue and Winifred Way. Police confirmed that a Nissan Altima was traveling north when the driver suddenly swerved into the other lane of traffic due to reasons that are not entirely known. This caused the Nissan to collide with a Dodge Ram that was traveling south.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. A 28-year-old male driver in the Nissan, as well as a 26-year-old female passenger, sustained severe injuries and were transported to Atrium Health Navicent for treatment. Those inside the Dodge were not hurt.

Due to the severity of the collision, the roadway was blocked at the intersection for an extended period of time. This led to delays until the scene was cleared.

The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues. Police will update with new information as it is available.

We offer our warmest sympathies to the parties injured in this accident with hopes of a speedy recovery.
