Albany- Around 8 o'clock Saturday morning, 19 year old Darryl Beasley, of Leesburg, died instantly in a wreck on Georgia 300 near Warwick.
State troopers say Beasley may have fallen asleep at the wheel and crossed the median into oncoming traffic. His car was snapped in half when it collided with a silver pick-up truck. Half of the car remained in the median while the other half flew across the highway.
"The curve bounced the car into the southbound lane in which there was a vehicle traveling southbound. The front of that vehicle struck the left rear of that vehicle causing the car to break in half and travel to the other side of the roadway," Trooper Scott McClure.
The driver of the truck, Mary Francis Williams, of Cordele, was transported to the hospital and was treated for her injuries.
