VALDOSTA – The passenger of a truck towing a boat was ejected from the vehicle and killed in a wreck on Interstate 75 in Lowndes County on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

Bramble Robbins, 93, of Columbia, S.C. was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt as a passenger in a 2006 Toyota Tundra driven by Danny Robbins, 66, also of Columbia., according to GSP Sgt. 1st Class Jeromy C. Roberts.

Danny Robbins was towing a boat when he reported fell asleep and struck a road sign in the emergency strip. He then over-corrected, losing control of the vehicle. The truck overturned several times until it came to a final rest in the northbound center lane, Roberts said.

Danny Robbins was wearing a seatbelt and was transported to South Georgia Medical Center for treatment of injuries.

Bramble Robbins was not restrained and was ejected from the truck. He was declared deceased at the scene, Roberts said.

The wreck brought northbound traffic to a stop at Exit 11 as authorities tended to the fatal accident. Traffic began to move approximately two hours after the incident.
