Rural Carrier killed in wreck with logging truck in Georgia

This post seems to be older than 1 year— so keep that in mind while reading. It might be outdated.


Georgia State Patrol is still investigating what caused the death of a postal employee on Highway 27 at Collard Valley Road on the Cedartown bypass earlier this afternoon.

Polk County deputy coroner Marty Robinson said that officials are still investigating how postal employee Gina W. Jackson, 52, of a Cedartown address, was killed today in a wreck involving a logging truck.

Her remains will be taken to the GBI crime lab for an autopsy, Robinson said.

Cedartown Police Chief Jamie Newsome said that Highway 27 between Highway 278 and North Main Street will remain closed for an indefinite period of time.

He has coordinated with the Department of Transportation to put up barricades at intersections to free up police officers from acting in their traffic direction role.

Check back for further updates as the story develops with the Standard Journal.
