Rome, GA (October 24, 2022) – A teen was killed in a fatal car accident that took place on a roadway in Rome on Saturday, October 22, at an unknown time. 

According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened on GA-20 around the area of mile marker 27. Police confirmed that a driver was traveling west in a Chevrolet Silverado when the driver failed to maintain their lane. The driver traveled off the side of the road, causing them to overturn several times as they were traveling across the other lane of traffic. Police claim that both occupants inside the vehicle were unrestrained and the passenger was ejected. 

Several responders, including local fire crews and paramedics, were called to the scene. The 16-year-old female passenger was severely injured. Both the passenger and driver were transported to Floyd Medical Center but the passenger tragically passed away while there. The condition of the driver is not known at this time. 

The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic for some time following the crash. Police quickly worked to clear the scene. 

No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues at this time.
