Valdosta, Georgia — A woman from Barwick was killed on Sunday, 58-year old Martitia Jones, after a pileup accident on U.S. 84 involving two semi-trucks. Police said that Jones, a nurse, was tending to the injuries in one accident when traffic lost control and caused a second accident last Sunday night at about 8:30 p.m., February 9, 2014.
Apparently, an 18-wheeler and a white car were involved in a wreck on eastbound U.S. 84 near Mack Hill Road that night. Both cars were disabled and the driver of the 18-wheeler required medical attention. Jones happened to witness the accident and was rendering aid to the 18-wheeler’s driver when some traffic came upon the wreckage and lost control.
Among those cars was another 18-wheeler, which crashed into the disabled vehicles where Jones was working. She was critically injured by the second collision and died at the scene, along with the semi-truck driver.
Another two people were injured, but no names were given. Police are still working on their investigation and haven’t mentioned if any charges will be filed.
