LEE COUNTY, Ga. (WALB) - The Georgia State Patrol and Lee County Sheriff’s Office deputies reported to the scene of a crash involving a tractor-trailer and a pickup truck Monday morning about 8:30 a.m., near Highway 91 and Highway 32.

Three people were in a four-door pickup truck that collided with the semi, and all died as a result of injuries sustained in the wreck.

Early Monday afternoon, Coroner Hill Mackey identified the victims as Seth Farmer, 33, Joe Efeya, 32, both of whom died on the scene, and Charles Riggins, 56, was transported to the hospital, and later died of his injuries.

The coroner said the other person involved did not suffer serious injury.

Worth County deputies redirected traffic down Highway 300 and Lee County Chief Deputy Lewis Harris asked that drivers headed towards Worth County travel back through Albany instead of taking Highway 300.
