One Car Accident Claims Woman’s Life

A 62-year-old woman was killed on Georgia Highway 147 on the night of November 24, as the Georgia State Patrol suspects she failed to maintain her lane during a turn.

It is unknown if Katherin Faye Clark, of Lyons, suffered any medical emergency that caused her to leave the roadway in her 2012 Chevrolet Captiva, but troopers do believe she was traveling too fast for conditions at the time of the accident. Clark was traveling north along the road when she ran onto the road’s shoulder after unsuccessfully negotiating a turn.

Once leaving the roadway, Clark’s vehicle struck a culvert, vaulted to the middle of the ditch, and struck a tree with the car’s front passenger side. The car continued to rotate and travel uncontrollably, hitting two more trees before coming to a final uncontrolled rest facing south.

Toombs- Montgomery EMS responded to the accident, but Clark was pronounced dead upon arrival.
