Second fatality confirmed in Worth County wreck


A young man celebrating his birthday and an elderly man were killed in a crash with a tractor trailer Friday evening in Worth County.

Jake Williams died at the scene at the intersection of Highway 112 and Shingler Road about 5:30. Friday was his 23rd birthday.

81 year-old Charles Lunsford was airlifted to a hospital in Macon where he died later Friday night.

Investigators say Lunsford pulled into the path of a semi that was heading north on Highway 112. The 18-wheeler crashed into Lunsford's pickup and the oncoming pickup Williams was driving.

We don't know the semi driver's name, but he was taken to Tift Regional Medical Center.
