Midway, GA – Woman Killed in Fatal Pedestrian Crash on N Coastal Hwy
Midway, GA (August 22, 2022) – One person was killed in a fatal pedestrian accident that took place on a highway in Midway on Monday morning, August 22.
According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened around 8:30 a.m. on the North Coastal Highway. Police confirmed that a 32-year-old woman was standing next to her vehicle in the area, identified as a Volkswagen Jetta. She may have been closing her trunk when she was suddenly struck by a driver inside a Hyundai Azera. The driver failed to maintain their lane and slammed into both the woman and her vehicle, causing them to fly into a ditch nearby.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The woman, who has not yet been formally identified, was tragically pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Hyundai, as well as three juveniles inside both vehicles, were rushed to local hospitals. One of the victims sustained serious injuries in the accident. Their current conditions are not yet known.
The roadway was blocked in most lanes of traffic in the area of the accident for some time. This led to delays in the area.
No further details have been released at this time but police continue their investigation into the accident.
We offer our warmest condolences to the family and friends of the victim involved in this accident. We also hope that the injured parties will receive a full recovery from their injuries.
