One person has died and two more were flown to hospitals out of town after a vehicle wreck near Steens on Monday night.
Lowndes County Coroner Greg Merchant identified the deceased as Franklin Wayne “Frankie” Honeycutt, 56, of Caledonia.
The accident occurred near the intersection of Neilson Road and Highway 12, Merchant said. Honeycutt was a passenger in a 2015 Honda that ran off the road, struck a ditch culvert and hit two trees before overturning in the road.
Two other men were in the car, Merchant said. They were airlifted to other hospitals for “serious injuries.”
Lowndes County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the crash.
