Albany-  With less than six hours to go in the Memorial Day travel period, the Georgia State Patrol is urging motorists to give themselves plenty of travel time and chose a designated driver.

As of noon Memorial Day there had been just over two thousand crashes for the holiday period beginning at 6:00 Friday night.

Five hundred sixty seven people have been injured in those crashes and nine people have been killed. One of those fatalities includes the death of a pedestrian in Valdosta.

The accident happened at about 11:40 Saturday night in the 3200 block of Madison Highway. The Georgia State Patrol says 29 year old Jennifer Lynn Green was killed after being hit by a car.

Troopers haven't released the name of the driver or who was at fault in the crash. The case remains under investigation.
