Byron man dies following accident

A Byron man died Tuesday morning following an accident at the intersection of Liberty Church and Hawkinsville roads.

Hubert Foskey, 72, of Lower Hartley Bridge Road, drove his 2007 Ford Ranger into the path of a 2008 Nissan Altima shortly before 8 a.m., said Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones.

Foskey was conscious and alert when medical personnel and deputies arrived, but he went into cardiac arrest in the ambulance and was pronounced dead at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, Jones said.

“He had no visible injuries and was hit on the passenger side,” Jones said.

One person was slightly hurt in the Nissan and was taken to Houston Healthcare in Warner Robins, Jones said.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the accident.
