A 40-year-old woman was killed in a two-vehicle accident in south Bibb County on Christmas Eve night.

Melissa Godfrey was headed north on Houston Road in a Honda Accord about 6:40 p.m. when she tried to make a left turn into the Sky View Mobile Home Park, located at 5411 Houston Road.

As she tried to make the turn, she pulled in front of a Chevy Silverado driven by 40-year-old Randall Ogletree of Gray, witnesses told Bibb County deputies. The vehicles collided at the entrance to the park.

Godfrey was pronounced dead at the scene by Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones, according to a statement from the sheriff's office.

Ogletree was taken a Macon hospital for treatment of minor injuries. His wife and two children, who were also in his truck, were also taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
