Several killed in accidents on I-75, Riverside Drive in Bibb

Several people were killed in an early morning accident on Interstate 75 North at Sardis Church Road following another fatal accident in the north end of Bibb County.

At 8 a.m. authorities were on the scene of the south Bibb crash involving a Ford F-150 pickup out of Florida that was pulling a U-haul trailer, said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

"They are burned beyond recognition," Jones said. "To be honest with you, I don't know how many bodies are in there but I know there are children."

Jones said it looks like the truck hit a guard rail.

This is the coroner's second fatal accident of the morning.

At 4 a.m. one person was killed at Butler Toyota on Riverside Drive in the north end of Bibb County. The victim hit a sign and destroyed four cars in the accident, Jones said.
