A 5-month-old male died from injuries sustained in a two-vehicle accident on Hwy. 98 Tuesday, Nov. 19.

A 5-year-old female also suffered life-threatening injuries. An 8-year-old boy was seriously injured and a 34-year-old Madison County resident, Tela Wood, was also injured in an accident that occurred shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday when Wood turned her 1998 4Runner in front of a 1998 Peterbilt truck driven by Dallas Fordham, 51, Carlton. Fordham was not injured in the accident.

The Georgia State Patrol has not yet released identities of the deceased infant or the two children injured in the accident. A GSP spokesperson said charges are pending.

There is a collection being taken up for this family to help with their expenses. This is an ideal time to share the love of the upcoming holidays. Donate if you can.

Is this a FundMe account? Or, is it through a local bank?

Praying for this family, mother for her loss. Trucker for a memory that will never be forgotten.
