Distracted driving suspected in deadly Thomas County crash

THOMAS CO., GA (WALB) - State troopers believe a cell phone may have distracted a driver who was killed in a head on crash in Thomas County.

Troopers say 19-year-old Larry Thomas Graham of Tift County was killed Wednesday afternoon when his Hyundai drifted into oncoming traffic on Highway 319 near Crowley Road.
The car crashed into a Ford Explorer driven by Sharon Kubik. She was taken to Archbold Hospital with serious injuries.

Troopers say they found a cell phone between Grahams legs and are looking into whether he was texting or the phone at the time of the crash.
