Oglethorpe man killed in wreck on Ga. 26

An Oglethorpe man died this morning in single-vehicle accident on Ga. 26 inside the city limits of Montezuma, the Georgia State Patrol says.

Donald C. Patterson, 40, died in the 10 a.m. wreck near Spaulding Road, said GSP Communications Equipment Operator Brandon Watts.

Patterson was driving a commercial dump truck east on Ga. 26 when it went off the north side of the roadway, struck a utility police, a business sign and a parked "bobtail tractor-trailer" that was not occupied, Watts said.

It's believed that Patterson had some medical problems that caused him to lose control of the vehicle and crash, Watts said.
