Man killed in Monroe County wreck

A 20-year-old Covington man died Wednesday morning in a traffic crash on Ga. 83 about four miles north of Forsyth, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.

Korey Ryan Curtis, driving a red Nissan Altima, struck a Ford F150 driven by Max Kenneth Squires of Eatonton about 6:30 a.m., Lt. Brad Freeman said.

Curtis died following the crash. Squires was taken to The Medical Center of Central Georgia with serious injuries after being extricated from his truck, Freeman said.

Preliminary investigation shows Curtis was traveling north and crossed the center line, striking Squires head-on, Freeman said.
