Three people killed in Pulaski County accident

Three members of a Warner Robins family were killed Sunday afternoon in an accident near Hawkinsville.

Jack Sandifer, 76, of Juliano Road, was driving an extended cab Dodge pickup on Ga. 247 in the rain when he lost control, left the road and hit a tree about three miles north of Hawkinsville, said Pulaski County coroner Charles Young.

70-year-old Meral Sandifer and her 20-year-old grandson, Christopher Glen Oody, were also killed in the accident, Young said.

Oody was riding in the front passenger seat and his grandmother was in the back seat, he said. None of the victims was wearing a seat belt, he said.

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the accident that happened shortly after 4 p.m. Sunday.
