One woman died and a six year old child was airlifted Monday evening after being struck by a pickup truck on Holmes Cannery Road in Tennille.
It happened around 7:20 p.m. on Monday, September 25.
Georgia State Patrol, who is investigating the case, said that a 25 year old female was in a wheelchair being pushed by a six year old female on Holmes Cannery Road when a pickup truck, driven by John Brown, hit the two subjects from behind.
Georgia State Patrol reported that Brown stated that he did not see the two females because there was a glare on the windshield of the truck.
According to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Brown was arrested and charged with driving under the influence and driving while license suspended.
This investigation is ongoing.
