ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Georgia State Patrol is investigating a fatal crash on Highway 19 in Baconton Thursday at an intersection with a newly installed traffic light.

Fifty-three year old Ronald Cramer was killed when his truck collided with a flooring truck from Marietta. Cramer was headed east on Highway 93, the flooring truck was headed south on 19.

Troopers say one of the trucks ran through the red light, but they haven't yet determined who was at fault. They say the driver of the flooring truck swerved to avoid hitting the pickup.

"He remembers approaching the light saw the vehicle was coming out in front of him, locked down his brakes and tried to avoid hitting him and ended up striking him anyways," said Trooper Michael Moses, Georgia State Patrol.

It took crews more than two hours to remove the vehicles from Highway 19. The driver of the flooring truck was not injured.
