Calhoun police probe fatal accident

Calhoun, Ga., police are investigating a two-vehicle accident Saturday night that resulted in a man’s death.

Dispatchers sent officers to Laurel Creek Drive at 8:19 p.m. Saturday in response to a report of an accident with injuries, a news release from police Chief Garry Moss states. The driver of a 2013 Dodge Charger traveling east had lost control and crossed into the westbound lane, striking a 2011 Jeep Wrangler, according to preliminary investigation reports.

A passenger in the Charger, identified as 19-year-old Kenny Owen Jr., was taken to Gordon Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Wrangler’s driver was treated at Gordon Hospital for minor injuries and released.

“We will continue our investigation into this matter in an effort to uncover a more definitive answer as to the cause of this accident,” Chief Moss said.
