WALTHOURVILLE, Ga. (WSAV) – One person was pronounced dead at the scene of a head on collision Sunday night in Walthourville according to Georgia State Patrol Trooper, Lyle Thurmond.

Thurmond said a 2007 Chevy Impala driven by Rondrick Dixon, 37, of Liberty County was traveling westbound on E. B. Cooper Highway towards Walthourville.

The Impala veered into the eastbound lane colliding with a 1999 Chevy Silverado pickup truck driven by Robert Stauffer, 35. 

The impact split the Impala into two pieces causing it to rest onto the grassy shoulder of the road with the rear wheels facing upwards and the front end landing right side up. 

First responders discovered Dixon, who was wearing his seat belt, laying on the road with fatal injuries. 

Dixon was pronounced dead later after emergency medical personnel tried to revive him. 

Stauffer was transported by ambulance to Memorial University Medical Center in Savannah with injuries.
