From the Georgia State Patrol Post in Rome:

On Sept. 8, at approximately 5:25 p.m., a 2008 Honda Civic was traveling south on GA 114. The driver, Christopher Williams, age 47 of Cedar Bluff, AL, failed to maintain lane, traveling off the west shoulder of the roadway. The driver jerked the wheel causing the vehicle to rotate counter-clockwise and cross both lanes of travel before leaving the roadway off the east shoulder. The Honda continued to rotate down the east embankment, striking a tree and fence with the right passenger pillar area. The Honda came to an uncontrolled rest off the east shoulder of GA 114. Upon arrival, the three occupants were being extracted by fire personnel. The occupant in the front passenger seat, Adyson Williams, age 13, was pronounced dead on the scene. It was determined Mr. Williams was the victim’s father. He was unresponsive and transported to Floyd Medical Center. A third occupant in the back seat, Aiden Williams, age 10, was airlifted to Erlanger Medical Center. This is an on-going investigation by the Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team.

Mr. Williams worked for Puckett EMS.
