Vehicular accidents almost always come with injury and damage, both to the occupants of the vehicle and the vehicle itself. Some accidents are mere fender benders and others are far more devastating. At times, they tragically include the loss of life.
In Monroe County, Georgia, one man is dead and two other people gravely injured after being ejected from a fiery crash on Hwy 42 on Saturday, January 30th.
An e-mail from Monroe County Sherrif’s Department confirmed that 19-year-old Devin Michael Day died after being ejected from the Jeep Wrangler he had been riding in. The accident occurred at about 3:45 a.m.
Also in the vehicle were 20-year-old Patrick Carter of Macon and 19-year old Tristan Anderson of Forsyth. The vehicle had been traveling northbound on the highway near Sidney Woods Drive. It was then that the car flipped multiple times after driving into a culvert. All three occupants were reported to have been ejected from the vehicle.
A Monroe County Sheriff’s Deputy discovered the scene and was able to pull two of the three men to safety.
Anderson is believed to have been driving the vehicle at the time of the accident. He was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital. Carter was taken by ambulance to the Macon hospital. Day was airlifted to Navicent Health Medical Center where he succumbed to his injuries.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
