OCILLA, GA (WALB) - Highway 319 was shutdown early Friday morning near mile marker 8, after a violent head-on collision that killed two people.

The crash happened just a mile outside of Ocilla, about 4:25 this morning about a mile and a half north of Bark Road in Irwin County.

A Toyota Tacoma driven by 64-year-old Floyd Sutton from Leesburg was headed South on US-319, when he crossed over the center line, and crashed head on into a Buick Roadmaster, driven 33-year-old Johnathan Johnson from Albany.

Both died at the scene.
