LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee Co. sheriff's deputies responded to a two vehicle wreck near the intersection of Philema and Hattie Bell Road around 2:30 Saturday afternoon.

Anne Marie Eubanks,17, a senior at Lee Co. High School, was traveling north on Philema Rd just north of Hattie Bell Road, and died at the scene.

Lee Co. Coroner Ronald Rowe,73, and his passenger Johnny Willis, 56, were traveling south on Philema Road.

Eubanks left the roadway and re-entered causing her vehicle to rotate counter clockwise. She then crossed into the southbound lane.

Rowe attempted to avoid the collision by swerving to the west shoulder of the roadway, and the two vehicles crashed, head on.

Eubanks was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected, while Rowe and Willis were both wearing their seat belts.

A Phoebe spokesperson said Monday that Ronald Rowe is in fair condition with serious injuries, and Johnny Willis has since been discharged.
