A fatal crash in Georgia claims a young life

Last updated Tuesday, November 15th, 2022

Yesterday, it was the fate of Gordon Highway to witness yet another horrific fatal crash in Georgia.

Georgia State Patrol reports that a speeding Nissan Rogue fled from deputies as officers tried to stop it for a traffic violation on Milledgeville Road and Tubman Home Road on Wednesday, November 02. 

In the chaotic chase that followed, the rogue vehicle hit two different cars at two locations before aborting the chase at Gordon Highway. After being taken into custody, the Nissan driver was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

Victims of the vehicles hit by the suspect were taken to neighborhood area hospitals for medical attention. 33-year-old Ashley Irvin, one of the drivers of a vehicle struck by the Nissan Rogue, tragically died from her injuries at Augusta University Medical Center ER just before 6:30 PM.

An autopsy on Irvin has been scheduled by the Coroner’s Office. Additional information about the suspect or other victims of the crashes was not released right away

Further details will be revealed once the investigation has been completed by the Georgia State Patrol.

We extend our sincere condolences to the Irvin family for their sorrowful loss and heartache. We also pray for a speedy recovery for the injured victims.

A fatal crash in Georgia leaves many people devastated

Death never arrives alone. It leaves behind a trail of shocked family members and friends wondering why it happened. Unfortunately, the negligence and petty selfishness of a reckless driver leave the victims’ families devastated.

Georgia is no stranger to tragic traffic crashes – it ranks fourth among all states in terms of road accident deaths despite being the 8th most populous state – 450 people died and 6,640 were injured in 4999 traffic accidents in 2020.

In most cases, it is not difficult to minimize fatal accidents if the driver takes precautions against unsafe driving practices, including:

  • DUI – driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Being distracted while driving by a phone, music, or small talk
  • Not wearing a seatbelt while driving
  • Speeding without regard for safety
