CAIRO, GA (WALB) -  Casey Valentine was trying to make a left turn from Highway 84 onto Singletary Road in Cairo.

Seventy-year-old Robert Linton's pickup truck crashed into the back of her car. Linton kept going and crashed into a tree. He later died at the hospital.

Valentine's 1-year-old son Trevor, who was in the backseat, was flown to a Tallahassee hospital but should recover.  Georgia State Trooper Clete Royal said, "It made a difference because he was strapped in like he was supposed to in a child restraint in the middle of the back seat."  He said it saved the child's life.

Casey Valentine is at Archbold Hospital, and she's expected to be ok, too.

Troopers are investigating the crash. They're looking into the possibility that Linton had a heart attack or some other medical emergency that caused him to crash.
