A camera on a Lamar County deputy’s patrol captured an image of an SUV pulling a white boat on a trailer that might have been involved in Monday’s fatal accident on Interstate 75.

Investigators think the driver might not have been aware that a tire could have come off the trailer and fatally injured 53-year-old Brian Edward Durst, who was changing a tire in the southbound emergency lane at mile marker 198 near Monroe County shortly before 1 p.m. Monday.

The Georgia State Patrol combined two frames before releasing the image in hopes the driver will come forward for questioning.

Anyone with information about the accident or the trailer is urged to call the GSP Communications Center in Newnan at 770-254-7201.
