Bibb County Collision on I-75, Claims One Life

A male driver lost his life in a Bibb County Collision on I-75. The crash happened at about 2:09 p.m. on Wednesday, July 28th. The cause of the accident is unknown at the time of this report.

However, in a press release, the Sheriff’s Office stated that the Bibb County Collision on I-75 happened near the Eisenhower Parkway. The sheriff’s office said a Chevrolet SUV driven by Darius Riley, 25, of Perry, was southbound on Interstate 75 before the Eisenhower entrance ramp. The car went off the road for unknown reasons and collided with a concrete barrier.

The impact ejected Riley from the vehicle, and responding medics conveyed him to Atrium Health Navicent, where he died. The paramedics also transported a passenger in the car, a 22-year-old female, to the same hospital to treat her injuries. The sheriff’s office said she was in stable condition at the time of the release.

Bibb County Coroner, Leon James, said he had notified the deceased’s next-of-kin. Anyone with information on the single-vehicle accident should contact the sheriff’s office or Macon Regional Crimestoppers at 1-877-68CRIME.

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of death in the United States. A traffic collision can involve a single car, two, or multiple vehicles. Most accidents involving several vehicles are regarded as chain-reaction crashes, and unlike solo accidents, investigators must locate the fault party.

The fault party is the person whose negligence caused the crash or started the chain of events that led to the collision. Under the Ohio fault system, such a person would pay compensation to the victim or victims of the crash for their physical injuries and any property damage.
