Second man dies after Milledgeville wreck

A second Gordon man died late Tuesday from injuries he sustained in crash on U.S. 441 that morning.

Buford Prosser, 64, died at a Macon hospital hours after the 11:15 a.m. wreck near Marshall Road on the north side of Milledgeville, the Georgia State Patrol said Wednesday.

Prosser and Albert Lee Harris, 55, had stopped along the highway to reconnect a straw trailer that came unhitched from the Toyota pickup they were in.

That’s when a 2009 Honda Fit, driven by a Milledgeville woman, ran into the trailer, striking the two men.Harris, also of Gordon, died soon after the crash.
