Albany - Another traffic fatality in South Georgia, the 4th in 18 hours. Tuesday afternoon, a Mitchell County man was killed when he pulled out in front of medical transport bus on U.S. 19 South in Dougherty County.

80-year-old Jimmie Smith of Camilla was driving West on Nelms Road and attempted to cross the Liberty Expressway. As he pulled into the Northbound lane, his vehicle was hit by an Early County Transit bus. Smith was killed.

The driver of the transit bus, 56-year old Sharon Bays was taken to the hospital to be checked out but is in good condition. The only passenger in the bus, 16-year old Tyler Sanders of Camilla, was not hurt.

"They're not sure if he had stopped to a complete stop, but basically even if he had, it's still failing to yield, whether he ran the stop sign or just pulled out in front of them," said Lt. M. J. Wood.

The bus driver will not be charged. The speed limit at the intersection of Nelms Road and Liberty Expressway is 65 miles per hour.
