The Armuchee community is mourning the loss of an eighth grade student and her father who were killed in a car accident in Lyerly.
Floyd County Schools officials confirm an eighth-grade student at Armuchee Middle School, Ady Williams, has died following a traffic accident.
Her father, Chris Williams was also killed in the single-vehicle crash on Highway 114, on Sunday evening around 5:30 p.m. The accident happened between Lyerly and Chattoogaville. A second child, Aiden, is hospitalized. Grief counselors were at the school today and possibly will be on hand later into the week.
In addition, this note has been posted on the Armuchee High Football Facebook page:
