A Jones County man who was behind the wheel in a fatal accident that killed his granddaughter will be buried Thursday.
Terrell Leon Terry Land died Saturday, six days after 11-year-old Alana Blair Land was killed in a crash on Ga. 11 near Gray.
He died due to complications from the injuries from the wreck, said investigator Kenny Allen of the Jones County Sheriffs Office.
The 62-year-old was not wearing his seat belt while driving a 1998 Chevrolet 1500 that went off the road in the 1800 block of Monticello Highway, Allen said.
We really dont know if he suffered a seizure ... or fell asleep or was distracted, he said.
Deputies talked to Land right after the 4 p.m. crash Oct. 20, but he was not able to explain what happened.
His granddaughter was asleep in the back seat and wearing her seat belt when the truck hit a driveway culvert with such force that the passenger side front tire was pushed into the front seat, Allen said.
