Recommended Posts

WHITFIELD COUNTY, Ga. — Whitfield County Dispatch says there is a confirmed fatality after crash on I-75 in Whitfield County.

Troopers were dispatched to a crash on I-75 northbound Sunday afternoon around 2:45 p.m.


According to the Georgia Department of Transportation, a white Jeep Commander was traveling north in the right lane. A tow truck was picking up a broken down green Nissan Xterra in the right emergency lane.


Officials say the driver of the Jeep Commander did not follow the move-over law and did not stay in his travel lane. The Jeep hit the back of the Nissan Xterra and then hit the tow truck.


According to the Georgia State Police Public Information Officer, the Jeep rolled several times and came to an uncontrolled stop off the road down an embankment in a wooded area.


Officials say the driver of the Jeep Commander was dead upon arrival, and the tow truck driver was not injured.

I am saddened to hear that the driver who did not obey the move over law died but I am very grateful to hear the operator is ok. Hopefully the operator involved was following a standard operating procedure such as running his equipment from the curb side. Sending prayers out to all affected

All I care about is that the Tow Truck Driver was not injured. Yeah, I feel bad for the family of the victim. I can't extend my sorrow for the reckless driver who did not make it. Ones Actions have consequences -----
