Two Teenagers Killed in Friday Morning Accident

Two teenagers were killed in a crash early Friday, April 19, at the intersection of Georgia Highway 130 East and Old Normantown Road in Toombs County.

According to the Toombs County Sheriff’s Office, at 9:01 a.m., the Toombs County 911 Dispatch Center received a call reporting a wreck involving a white Ford truck and a green Chevrolet car at the intersection. Upon arrival, deputies found both vehicles northwest of the intersection in the ditch.

Based on preliminary evidence, authorities believe that the white Ford truck — driven by Freddy Juarez, 40, of Jacksonville, Florida, and carrying six other passengers — was traveling north on Old Normantown Road when he failed to stop at the intersection, and struck the green Chevrolet driven by Robert Yepe, 45, of Lyons. The Chevrolet was traveling west on Highway 130.

Two of Juarez’s passengers, Daniela Teran, 17, and Sebastian Juarez, 17, both of Jacksonville, were pronounced deceased at the scene. Juarez’s passenger Reynalda Jiminez, 27, was flown from the crash site to Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah by the Air Evac Lifeteam 91, while Juarez and fellow passengers Jose Gomez, 37, Jesus Juarez, 27, and Brusela Lopez, 33, along with Yepe, were transported to the Memorial Health Meadows Hospital with severe injuries.

The accident has been turned over to the Georgia State Patrol Post 18 (Reidsville) for further investigation.
