Crash proves fatal

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie man was killed Saturday afternoon in a single-car accident in north Colquitt County.

The Georgia State Patrol said that Cesar Barrios Rosas lost control while driving south on Sumner Road. The accident occurred at about 2:45 p.m. about a mile south of Doerun-Norman Park Road.

After leaving the road on the left side, the 1999 Plymouth Breeze started rotating clockwise, struck the ditch and started rotating counter-clockwise, according to the state patrol. The car hit a tree and then began flipping on the roof before the rear bumper hit another tree and brought the car to a stop.

Rosas, who was not wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected, with the car coming to a final rest on its roof.

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
