GSP accident

A Cobbtown woman was killed Thursday night in a crash on Highway 301 South near Buddy’s Truck Stop.

Just after 7 p.m., Brittany Nichole Gardner, 26, was traveling north when her Toyota Tundra left the roadway and ran underneath a detached semitrailer, said Georgia State Patrol Trooper 1st Class Joshua Benfield.

Gardner was killed upon impact, he said.

There was no suspicion of alcohol and no evidence in Gardner’s truck indicating alcohol was a factor, he said. The cause of the crash is yet unknown. Witnesses said Gardner never applied her brakes, he said.

The wreck remains under investigation.
