A 22-year-old male has been killed in a tragic accident on 221 Highway North just above West Green. Very little information is known about the accident thus far. However, it appears as though a tractor-trailer and a van collided head-on early this afternoon.
According to information published by WALB.com, Marcoantonio Desoto, 22, was driving the van. Apparently, Desoto drifted across the centerline, striking the truck. Desoto was ejected from the vehicle and died as a result of his injuries. The crash blocked both lanes of Highway 221 for several hours. However, authorities cleared the scene relatively quickly and had the roadway opened by mid-afternoon.
Charges are not expected to be filed as a resultof the accident.
