An 11-year-old girl died Sunday afternoon when her grandfather crashed his pickup on the Monticello Highway in Jones County.

Alana Land, of Gray, was in the back seat of the 1998 Chevrolet 1500 when Terrell Land went off the right side of Ga. 11 in the 1800 block, said Deputy William Jernigan of the Jones County Sheriff’s Office.

The truck hit a culvert shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday.

Land, who was hospitalized after the accident, has not been able to explain to investigators what happened, Jernigan said.

No charges were filed as of Monday afternoon.
