Man crashes into Miller Middle School in Macon

Telegraph staffDecember 20, 2013 

A man crashed his SUV Friday afternoon into Miller Magnet Middle School in Macon.

Off-duty Bibb County sheriff’s Deputy Chauncey Eady was working part-time about 5:30 p.m. at MidSouth Community Federal Credit Union when he heard the squeal of tires. He went outside the bank on Lasseter Place and saw a big cloud of smoke, he said.

The automobile had struck the school.

“I ran uphill and seen the subject trapped inside the vehicle,” Eady said. “I asked him if he was OK, but he was just mumbling to me and wouldn’t really talk to me.”

Eady pulled the man out of his Dodge Durango and called his emergency dispatcher. Eady said he put handcuffs on the man because he became combative and tried to get away.

When Macon police and EMS arrived, Eady turned over the man’s wallet to them. EMS handcuffed the driver to the gurney he was on.

The white male driver had no other passengers. His vehicle had a Jones County license plate.

Investigators on the scene would not say whether the man will face criminal charges.
