Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones reports a fatal accident with a dump truck that is snarling traffic Friday afternoon on Mercer University Drive at Burton Avenue.
Motorists are urged to avoid that stretch of road as traffic lights are out on Mercer University Drive near Macon Mall between Bloomfield and Anthony roads following the 2:17 p.m. accident, according to a news release from the Macon Police Department.
The bottom half of a utility pole was snapped away which brought down the traffic light and left other lines suspended from the top of the pole.
A fire hydrant was also knocked over as the dump truck spilled what appears to be gravel in the collision that appears to involve two other vehicles.
Never miss a local story.
No further information was immediately available.
