Albany-  Two people have now died as a result of two separate crashes over the last two days in Albany.

We now know it was 51 year old Donald Hugh Hills of Pembroke, Georgia who was struck Monday along South Slappey Boulevard. Hills died Wednesday morning from injuries received in that crash.

Hills had been walking along South Slappey near Oakridge Drive. Police haven't said whether he was hit by the SUV driven by 45 year old Lisa Bartlett of Albany or if the light pole that was knocked over hit him. Charges against Bartlett are pending.

Ninety year old Thornton Brooks was killed Tuesday night when two pickup trucks collided on North Jefferson Street in Albany.

Brooks was a passenger in 58 year old Wynell Smith's truck as it turned in front of another truck at Jefferson and Philema just after seven last night. Smith of Leesburg turned in front of 18 year old Cameron Rycroft causing his truck to slam into her vehicle.

Smith and Rycroft were treated for injuries and are okay. Charges in the crash are pending.
