16-year old dies in traffic fatality

Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of a traffic accident June 7 that took the life of a Sandy Creek student.

Sheriff Barry Babb said at 10:50 a.m. June 6, a 16-year old was headed south on Veterans Parkway near Lee’s Mill Road driving a Honda Accord. He lost control of the car and wound up in the northbound lane and struck a Volkswagen Jetta driven by a 19-year old Peachtree City resident. The 16-year old was pronounced dead at the scene, while the Jetta driver was transported to Grady Hospital in Atlanta and later released.

Officials still don’t know why the driver lost control of the car, but said it was raining that day.
