A Macon teenager died and his brother was seriously hurt in a crash in south Bibb County early Monday afternoon.
Joshua Jones, 19, was riding with his brother, 21-year-old Jequez Jones, to Warner Robins for their aunt's funeral when the crash occurred on Ga. 247 near Feagin Road, Bibb County Deputy Coroner Lonnie Miley said.
A car driven by a 20-year-old Macon man clipped the truck and Jequez Jones lost control, the Bibb County Sheriff's Office said in a news release.
The truck overturned, trapping Joshua Jones inside. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Never miss a local story.
Jequez Jones was taken to the Medical Center, Navicent Health, where he was in serious condition after the 1:30 p.m. wreck.
"(Jequez) was following his father, who actually looked into the rear view mirror and kind of witnessed the accident," Miley said. "It's just a very, very unfortunate incident."
It took firefighters several hours to cut Joshua's body from the truck, and traffic was blocked southbound for more than two hours.
