GA Tow Truck Operator Dies After Crash

Our condolences to the family and acquaintances of Robert Vaughn Bailey of Macon, GA. The 33-year old died this morning after a crash.

Here's the Macon Telegraph story:

A Macon man is dead and another is in the hospital following a traffic accident near the Interstate 16/Interstate 75 north interchange at 11:30 a.m.

Macon police Sgt. Melanie Hofmann said the white Ford F550 tow truck lost control and hit a guardrail at the intersection just before noon.

Robert Vaughn Bailey, 33, of Chapman Road, was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia and pronounced dead at 12:21 p.m., said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

A passenger in the truck, Charles Pittman, 32, was ejected from the truck. He is listed in stable condition.

Both men were ejected from the vehicle, Jones said.

The accident caused traffic to be blocked in all lanes for about a hour, Hofmann said.

Hofmann said the accident is still under investigation by the Macon Police Department.
