Man dies in Interstate 16 wreck in Bibb County

A 58-year-old man died after becoming trapped in the truck he was driving westbound on Interstate 16, Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said.

Willie Flantroy, of Decatur, was trapped in the truck after it crossed the median, burst through a guardrail and flipped over in the eastbound lanes, Jones said.

A separate accident also was reported on I-16 westbound near the fatal crash, according to Macon-Bibb County 911 reports.

In addition, another vehicle overtuned on Interstate 75 north between the Hardeman Avenue and Pierce Avenue exits.

There were no immediate reports of injuries in that wreck.
