BAKER COUNTY, GA (WALB) – So far six people have been killed on Georgia roads over the New Year's Holiday Travel period which ends Sunday at midnight.
Two of the fatalities occurred in Southwest Georgia.
The first happened late Saturday afternoon when troopers say 40-year-old Curtis Hudson Junior slammed his GMC Sierra into a tree off Colquitt-Ford road, that's about a half mile from Highway 91 in Baker County.
Hudson went off the road and traveled about 50-feet before crashing.
State troopers are also investigating a pedestrian fatality in Coffee county that killed a Douglas man. The Georgia State Patrol tells us 59-year-old Raymond Martin was hit by a car just after 6:30 New Years Eve.
They say he was walking on Georgia Highway 135 at the intersection of New Forrest Highway when he was killed. No charges have been filed and the case is still under investigation.
