A teenage girl from Macon died Thursday afternoon from injuries sustained in a single-vehicle accident late Wednesday night that also sent another teen to the hospital, Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said.
Jones said Abigail Hinson, 17, of Macon, was pronounced dead at 3:41 p.m. at the pediatric unit of The Medical Center of Central Georgia from a closed head injury she received in the accident.
The driver of the vehicle, Grant Hoffman, 18, of Macon, is listed in stable condition.
According to a Bibb County sheriff’s news release, a 2008 Nissan Altima was headed west near the 7000 block of Zebulon Road at about 11:49 p.m. Wednesday when the driver lost control of the vehicle, veered into the eastbound lane and left the roadway. The vehicle rolled over and hit several trees before stopping.
The accident remains under investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 478-751-7500.
