UPDATE: Macon woman dies in accident

A 38-year old Macon woman died Monday night two hours after a traffic accident in the 3700 block of Hartley Bridge Road.

Katherine Hayes Hatton of Eagles Nest, was driving a 2008 Honda Accord at about 4:30 p.m. near School Road when her car hit a Chevrolet Suburban head-on, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Bibb Sheriff's investigators say Hatton crossed the center line in a curve near Swymer Drive.

Hatton had to be cut from her vehicle and died just before 7 p.m. at The Medical Center of Central Georgia. Jones said. The driver of the Suburban, Brannon Hicks, 44, sustained non-life threatening injuries and was in stable condition after the accident.

The crash is under investigation by the Bibb County Sheriffs Office. No charges are pending, Jones said.
