Officials have identified one of two drivers killed in a Colquitt County wreck on Friday afternoon.

GSP said that Steven Lee Chambers, 31, of Lake Park was driving a work truck when the accident happened.

Law enforcement and emergency personnel responded to a report of a head-on collision on Georgia Highway 33, near mile marker 19 around 12:30 p.m.

According to witnesses, a Yukon traveling north crossed into the southbound lane and hit Chambers' white GMC truck head on.
