MOULTRIE -- Maggie Dunn, 57, of Crosland, was at fault in an accident that took her life Tuesday afternoon, according to the Georgia State Patrol (GSP).
The GSP's report, released Thursday, determined Dunn was driving her Mazda Millennia in the center of Elton Clark Road near Crosland when it collided head-on with a Chevrolet Camaro, driven by Suzanna Adamson, 33, of Omega.
The GSP said Adamson was driving her Camaro north and Dunn was driving south, both on Elton Clark Road, a dirt road near Livingston Bridge Road. When the two reached a hillcrest, the vehicles collided head-on, the GSP said. Neither driver was wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.
Colquitt County Sheriff's Cpl. Randy Stevens said Tuesday Dunn was pronounced dead at the scene. Adamson was taken to Colquitt Regional Medical Center, where a hospital spokesperson said she was listed in stable condition Thursday afternoon.
The GSP's Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT) arrived at the scene Tuesday night and conducted its investigation of the accident. Based upon evidence they found after mapping the scene, it was determined the Millennia had infringed onto the lane where the Camaro was driving, the GSP said.
Drug tests are pending to determine if alcohol was involved in the accident, the GSP said. Citations against Adamson for driving with a suspended license and a seat belt violation are also pending.
The GSP urges drivers to take precautions while driving on a dirt road such as Elton Clark Road. The speed limit on dirt roads is 35 miles per hour, and dirt roads should be treated the same as regular roads. Despite deep trenches alongside many dirt roads, drivers need to maintain their lane by staying as far right as possible and be aware of potential drivers in other lanes.
