Worth County -- At about three Friday afternoon, a White Honda Accord slammed into a telephone pole on a county road just outside of Sumner in eastern Worth County.

Troopers say the car was headed North on Sumner-Shingler Road when the driver lost control on a sharp curve.

The 19-year-old driver, Justin Bernard Seay, was killed when the steering wheel crushed him.

The backseat passenger, 16-year-old Wadell Crutchfield Jr. was also killed in the crash. Emergency responders say he was clutching a basketball.

"This is the first bad wreck I have seen since I have started to work here in 1999. But it is a bad curve. As far as I know the county has not anticipated doing anything at this time. But it might be something that might have to be looked at in the future," said Sumner City Clerk, Bonnie Walker.

The front seat passenger , 19-year-old Frederick Douglas, was thrown from the car during the crash, and is hospitalized.

All three of them are from Sylvester. Troopers say no one in the car was wearing a seat belt.

So far there have been 10 fatalities in Georgia this holiday weekend.
