Wednesday, Jul. 22, 2009

MILLEDGEVILLE —A Gordon man was killed and another seriously injured Tuesday when a car crashed into the pine-straw trailer they were rehitching to their truck along U.S. 441.

The Georgia State Patrol said the wreck happened near Marshall Road, a few miles south of the Lake Sinclair bridge, shortly after 11 a.m.

Albert Lee Harris, 55, was killed and Buford Prosser, 64, was injured when a 2009 Honda Fit, driven by 43-year-old Tammy McMullen of Milledgeville, struck the trailer, which had come loose from the 2007 Toyota Tundra the men had been riding in, a patrol spokeswoman said. McMullen was not hurt.

The men were apparently between the pickup and the trailer when the crash happened. Prosser, whose legs were badly hurt, was being treated at The Medical Center of Central Georgia, the patrol spokeswoman said.

No charges had been filed and the incident still was being investigated.
