A man died from injuries sustained in a head-on crash Wednesday morning in Byron, authorities said.

Charles Patrick Curtis, 31, was traveling west on Ga. 49 near W.E. Green Parkway when he crossed over the center line and struck an eastbound pickup truck, according to the Georgia State Patrol and Peach County Coroner Kerry Rooks.

After impact, the car came to rest across the eastbound lanes, facing south, and the pickup came to rest across both left and right eastbound lanes, facing southeast, the GSP said. The crash site was about a mile south of Interstate 75.

Curtis was pronounced dead at 10:52 p.m. at the Medical Center of Peach County, Navicent Health, Rooks said.

He was not wearing a seatbelt, the GSP said.

Curtis’ driver license had a Warner Robins address, but he was believed to be living in Byron, Rooks said.

The driver of the pickup truck was not hurt, Rooks said.

The 10:10 a.m. crash remains under investigation by the GSP.
