“The truck was traveling eastbound and the Mustang was traveling southbound,” said Griffin Police Department Cpl. James McFarlan.
He said the driver of the Mustang did not see the stop sign and ran it, striking the truck.
Griffin Police Department traffic patrolman Travis Wick said the driver of the truck was William Yeoman of Griffin, while the driver of the Mustang was Adrian Barksdale of Milner. He said the accident took place at 3:12 p.m.
Andrew Fillmore was riding with Yeoman.
“It happened so fast I didn’t even know it,” he said.
Fillmore did not suffer any injuries. He said they were traveling back to work — both are contractors — when the accident occurred.
Wick said Barksdale was cited for running a stop sign and having bald tires. He was also cited for having an open container — old beer cans — in his car, although Wick said he believed they belonged to an earlier passenger.
Paramedics loaded Yeoman onto a helicopter at Griffin Fire-Rescue Station One. Griffin Fire Marshal Capt. Mitch Cardell said Yeoman suffered head injuries and was being taken to Grady.
