Maggie Dunn, 57, of Larry Dunn Road in Crosland was killed when her Mazda Millennia collided head-on with a Chevrolet Camaro, driven by Suzanna Adamson, 33, of Omega. Adamson was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center, and a hospital spokesperson said she was listed in critical condition Tuesday night.
The Colquitt County 911 Center said they received a call about the accident at 4:29 p.m. Colquitt County Sheriff's Cpl. Randy Stevens said no one witnessed the accident, but people at the intersection of Elton Clark Road and Livingston Bridge Road heard the crash and called the 911 center.
Stevens said Dunn was pronounced dead at the scene. Colquitt County Coroner John Vickers said it appeared she was killed instantly from the collision.
Adamson was trapped in her vehicle, so the Moultrie Fire Department was called to the scene and extricated her. Although she was seriously injured, Stevens said, Adamson was conscious and alert during the entire process.
The Georgia State Patrol's Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT) was called in to investigate the accident.
A report from the SCRT was not available as of press time.
