TIFT COUNTY, GA – The Georgia State Patrol is investigating a head on collision in Ty Ty Monday morning that left one man dead.
A white Ford pickup was travelling west on Upper Ty Ty road and attempted to turn left onto Ray Taylor road, failing to yield to a Chevrolet Blazer. As a result, both vehicles struck head-on in the eastbound lane of Upper TyTy road.
The driver of the Chevrolet Blazer, 58 year old, Steven Hobbs was transported by ambulance en-route to life flight, but he passed away before arriving. Hobbs was reportedly a retired teacher at Tift County schools.
Officials do not believe the driver of the pickup truck was on his phone at the time of the accident and has been tested for drugs and alcohol. Roberts says the driver of the pick-up truck said he simply didn’t see Hobbs’ Car.
