THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - Georgia State Patrol is continuing to investigate a fatal accident in Thomas County.

Troopers said a head-on collision that happened Saturday night on Coffee Road killed 33-year-old Antonio Lovett.

Troopers said Lovett's car crossed the center line and struck an oncoming pickup truck.

Lovett was pronounced dead on the scene.

Sergeant Jeff Culpepper with Thomasville Post 12 Georgia State Patrol said, “We really don't know why he drifted into the other lane.  We don't think speed was involved, we don't think alcohol or drugs were involved.  But we are still looking at a few other things.”

The driver of the pickup was taken to Archbold Memorial Hospital with a leg injury and is in good condition.
