Man Killed In One-Car Accident
An early morning accident last week claimed the life of Jayson Kole Carter, 24, of Toombs County, near the intersection of J.L. Thompson Road and U.S. Highway 1.
An investigation completed by the Georgia State Patrol, revealed that Carter was traveling south on U.S. 1 at 6:12 a.m. Thursday, December 8, when his car left the roadway and ran onto the east shoulder of the road. The vehicle continued for 204 feet before yawing for 126 feet. The car then partially overturned on its left side, striking a piece of heavy machinery from the recent road construction with its top and right side.
The car stopped upon impact, upright and facing south.
It is unknown what caused the car to leave the roadway.
Carter leaves behind his father, Jay Carter, of Cedar Crossing and mother, Debra Taylor, of Johnson Corner, along with his brothers, grandparents, and several aunts, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
