The identity has been released of a Fort Valley man killed in a double-fatality crash Tuesday evening in Warner Robins.
Two drivers died of traumatic injuries and a child was ejected from an SUV in the head-on crash on Watson Boulevard.
Herschel Augustus Bell, 61, of Peach County, died at Medical Center, Navicent Health, after the collision that happened at about 6:45 p.m.
Trevonda Bryant, 43, who was driving a Kia SUV, was pronounced dead at the scene and a child in a car seat was thrown from her vehicle and suffered serious injuries, according to a Warner Robins police news release.

The child was taken to Medical Center, Navicent Health, in Macon and later transported to Children's Hospital in Atlanta.
Bell was at the wheel of a black Ford F-150 with a handicapped tag hanging from the rear view mirror when his car crossed into oncoming traffic.
"We're still sorting out what happened and we feel like he might have suffered a medical emergency that caused him to cross over the center line," Houston County Coroner Danny Galpin said late Wednesday morning.
Both drivers suffered multiple traumatic injuries as the cause of death, Galpin said.
Autopsies were performed Wednesday morning, he said.
Warner Robins police said Bell's pickup was headed east on Watson and crossed the median near Austin Avenue, hitting the Kia near the Huddle House.
Another vehicle was sideswiped in the crash.
It took authorities several hours to confirm Bryant's identity and although they knew Bell's name, they had trouble locating his family, Galpin said.
"We found a cousin in New York," said Galpin, who did not think Bell had local relatives.
The Warner Robins police traffic officers are investigating the crash, which blocked the road for about four and a half hours.
