Midgeville, GA (November 29, 2018) – This morning, November 29, a fatal car accident involving two vehicles took place on Roberson Mill Road that sadly took the life of one child. The child was a 6-year-old kindergartener who was riding as a passenger in one of the vehicles that crashed.
Police say that the drivers of both the vehicles are in critical condition following the accident. The 6-year-old child was taken to the hospital this morning around 10 a.m., where he was pronounced dead.
The accident took place this morning around 7:40 a.m. at the intersection of Roberson Mill Road and Hillandale Drive. The driver of a Rav4 did not yield the right-of-way when pulling out, which is when it was struck in the door by a Dodge Avenger. The driver of the Avenger had been traveling at high speeds at the time.
The roads were blocked for quite some time and one person was flown to the hospital by medical helicopter. At this time, police continue to investigate the accident.
At this time, we would like to extend our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of the small child who passed away as a result of this accident. We hope that the other driver who remain in critical condition will have the strength to make it through these dark hours ahead. Our thoughts are with all of the people and families who were affect by this crash.
