Driver, 73, dies from collision with EMS vehicle
A crash at Highway 21 and Highway 24 in Newington Sept. 14 was fatal for a 73-year-old Oliver man.
Tommy Jenkins of 183 Oak Street died from injures when his 1998 Chevrolet Lumina pulled out in front of a Central EMS transport that had eight occupants, including the driver.
The EMS vehicle had its emergency lights and sirens activated at the time of the collision.
Although the EMS bus received disabling damage, none of the occupants were injured in the crash that occurred at 6:04 p.m.
According to reports from the Georgia State Patrol, Jenkins’ Lumina was traveling west on Georgia 24 at the intersection of Georgia 21. The EMS vehicle was traveling south on Highway 21 in the left lane at the intersection of Highway 24.
The Lumina crossed over Georgia 21 to travel west on Georgia 24. Jenkins reportedly failed to yield to the EMS vehicle and entered the left south bound lane into the path of the EMS vehicle.
The EMS vehicle, driven by Eric Lumpkin, 37, attempted to avoid the collision by entering the right south bound lane on Georgia 21 but was unsuccessful.
