On Saturday, July 29, a crash occurred involving two vehicles at the intersection of Fischer Crossing Boulevard in Coweta County, killing a Newnan couple.
The accident happened around 8:30 p.m., claiming the lives of Thomas Scott Mayo, 58, and Pamela Mayo, 57. The couple, driving a silver Ford Escape, was traveling east on State Route 34, attempting to make a turn in the left turn lane. At the same time, a black Infiniti was traveling west on State Route 54.
The Infiniti passed straight through the red traffic signal and bumped onto the passenger side of the Escape.
“Both occupants of vehicle two [silver Escape] were pronounced dead on scene.” Tracey Watson from the Public Information Office of Georgia Department of Public Safety said.
The driver of the Infiniti, who was sent to Atlanta Medical Center, was Andrew John Wiemann, 28, of Acworth. Charges are pending the completion of the follow-up investigation by the Georgia State Patrol’s Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team.
