Accident on Liberty St

A car accident on North Liberty Street between a GC student and a resident of Milledgeville resulted in the resident’s hospitalization but no fatalities.

The wreck occurred around 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 14, behind a GC employee parking lot. According to the police report and witnesses of the aftermath, it was a foggy morning.

Zoe Irvin, 19, had stopped at a stop sign and, according to the report, looked both ways before proceeding forward. However, when she moved forward, her vehicle struck the driver’s side of another car that was traveling east on West Thomas Street.

Irvin walked away without injury.

Pauline Reeves, 54, was driving the other car and had two minors, ages one and 14, in the backseat.

According to the report, neither of the minors were harmed, but Reeves was taken to the hospital by ambulance for “possible injury or complaint.” It is unclear what her injuries were, but she was not cited as being in critical condition.

No airbags deployed in either vehicle, no one was ejected, and no one had to be removed from the vehicles by a wrecker.

According to the report, Irvin is considered at fault for “failure to yield,” but there is no further information at this time.
