(Franklin, GA) — A driver was killed in a head-on collision Sunday afternoon on HWY 34 in Heard County near the Alabama state line.

According to a report by the Georgia State Patrol, 30-year-old Lacey Petty was fatally injured after her 2007 Toyota Corolla crashed head-on into a 2013 Honda Pilot while traveling east towards Franklin.

Trooper Norman, of GSP Post #24 Newnan, was dispatched to the scene around 6:30 PM near mile marker one on HWY 34.

The preliminary investigation indicates that both vehicles were on the wrong side of the roadway.

The cause of the crash is still being determined and the Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team (SCRT) is investigating.

The GSP has not released any information on the occupants of the 2013 Honda Pilot.
