The passengers are in stable condition and are expected to make a full recovery, according to Andrew Davidson with Georgia State Patrol (GSP).

Davis was traveling at a very high rate of speed before the accident happened, Davidson said.

“The road turns to the right, he kept going straight and ran off the road. It appears he hit a culvert driveway exit and got a little airborne, landed, then continued traveling along the wood line until he hit an Oak tree on the front driver side. Caused the vehicle to spin and hit a second tree and come to rest where it is now,” Davidson said.

Davidson said after speaking with the victims they told him they all just worked a 12-hour shift at Sunshine Farms.

Davidson told WALB Davis' friends claimed he was exhausted at work, almost falling asleep on the job. After learning that, Davidson suspects Davis might’ve fallen asleep at the wheel.

Davidson said he’s still waiting for the results from the Thomas County coroner to determine what initiated the accident.
