At least one person was fatally injured in a two-vehicle wreck on Redmond Circle just north of the West Rome Walmart on Tuesday evening.
Rome Police stated that, just prior to 6:30pm, a white car was traveling south on Redmond Circle near West Butler Street when it collided with a white Ford 350 work truck traveling north; as a result the car rolled over and landed on its roof on the west shoulder of the road with a driver and two passengers trapped inside.
Police confirmed later that one person inside the car had died and another had been taken by Floyd ambulance with critical injuries.
A third person was still inside the car after the wreck, but rescue crews stopped working to get them out after the Floyd County Chief Deputy Coroner, Connie Chandler, arrived. No statement was issued regarding that individual. The driver of the truck was checked out at the scene and was fine.
One of the Georgia State Patrol Specialized Collision Reconstruction Teams was called in to help investigate the wreck. The GSP is in charge of the investigation.
