A Buford man died in a single-vehicle accident on Hwy. 98 Nov. 21. According to a report from the Georgia State Patrol, Jeffery Scott Bradford, 50, was killed after wrecking his 1987 Ford pickup truck on Hwy. 98 just east of McGee Fitzpatrick Road shortly after 5 a.m.

Bradford told first responders that he swerved to avoid a deer. He lost control of his vehicle and left the roadway, striking a ditch. The truck overturned and Bradford, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected, with his pickup coming to rest in a field. He was pronounced dead at Athens Regional Medical Center.
