Colquitt woman remains in serious condition at Phoebe

WORTH CO., GA (WALB) - A Colquitt County woman remains in serious condition tonight after a crash that killed two people in Worth County.

Linda Davis, of Hartsfield, was one of three people riding in a minivan that was hit by a dump truck Thursday at the intersection of Georgia Highways 133 and 112 in southern Worth County.

73-year old Thomas Davis and 73-year old Sandy Duke of Sale City were killed in the crash.

The state patrol says the minivan ran the stop sign at the intersection.

The granddaughter of one those killed in Thursday's accident says a traffic light needs to be installed at that intersection, which was the scene of another fatal wreck two weeks ago.

Kori Luckey is the granddaughter of Sandy Lee Duke.

Luckey says her grandma was great person who always read her Bible.

“Its definitely a bad area, they are both busy sections, and I really think that there needs to be a light," says Kori Luckey.

Nina Price's dad used to run store at the corner of highway 133 and 112 in the 1980s called Mr. G's.

She recalls a bad crash where a young driver of a semi truck crashed into a car killing a man.

“People definitely need to slow down, but if you look both directions there are some blind spots on Moultrie Rd. and if your not familiar with this area, your not going to realize that your coming up on a dangerous intersection," says Worth County Resident Nina Price.

She's says she thought the overhead caution light that was taken down was more effective.

A study by the Department of Transportation two years ago showed there had been 28 accidents at the intersection of Highways 133 and 112 in eight years.
