A single car containing a male driver and a female passenger veered off Ga. 53 and struck a tree, killing both people.
According to Lt. Paul Cosper of the Georgia State Patrol:
“It went off the road about 10 p.m., but we didn’t hear about it until about 6 a.m. because nobody was there to witness the wreck when it happened.”
Cosper identified the driver as Tony Anthony Patterson, 51, of Fairmount, and the passenger as Marla Michelle Mahan, 41, of Waleska.
He said they were both dead when patrolmen arrived at the scene. Patterson and Mahan were ejected from the car, a 1966 Chevy Nova, Cosper said.
