Berrien County - People in Alapaha are now mourning the death of another member of their community killed in another crash this afternoon.

Berrien County Sheriff's Investigators say Sam Hillard was traveling North on Georgia 129 toward Alapaha with his wife Phyllis.

He lost control of his mini van, ran off the road and hit a pecan tree.

Mr. Hillard was pronounced dead at the scene.

Mrs. Hillard was taken to Tift Regional Hospital.

Deputies say Hillard had a history of seizures, and they're investigating to see if that could have caused the crash.

The Hillards are originally from Alapaha but were living in Thomas County.
