Georgia State Troopers have stated that no charges will be filed in connection with the fatal accident that happened shortly before 4:00pm Saturday on Highway 27 in Gore.
Sergeant Shan Burnette of the Rome Post of the Georgia State Patrol said a Chevy Silverado, being driven by 54 year old John Douglas Pasley of Warner Robins, Georgia was traveling north on Highway 27, and was in the process of attempting to turn into a convenience store parking lot at the Gore/Subligna Crossroads when he turned into the path of an on-coming tractor-trailer, driven by 52 year old Walter Howard Gordon of Summerville.
The tractor trailer struck the pickup, with the impact taking both vehicles off the roadway. The Silverado came to rest on its side.
Pasley was fatally injured as a result of the crash, meanwhile the driver of the tractor-trailer was unhurt.
