Area teen killed in Monday morning accident

Special to SEGAZINE

A Monday morning accident took the life of an area teen earlier Monday after he was accidentally struck by a vehicle while on an east side Brantley highway.

Coroner Richard Rowell confirmed Monday afternoon that Justin Kody Smith, 14, was struck by a car at approximately 10:30 a.m. Monday while he rode his bicycle along Hwy. 110 West past Fort McIntosh.

Emergency calls went out shortly after with operators warning of a possible fatality in the accident.

The accident scene temporarily closed off the section of the highway that morning.

Rowell said that Smith’s family had been notified of the incident.  Smith attended Atkinson Church of God of Prophecy, he said – just miles from the scene of the collision.

The Enterprise will provide more information as it becomes available.

    Driver of car should have some accountablity for this childs life. Kody was great young man who had his whole life in front of him and that was taken away from him and his family. GSP is wrong for not filing any charges against Ms Canty. I would ahte to know because Kody was 14 yrs old and from Brantley Co, no one even cares. Sad world we now live in and I bet it would be totally different if Kody had been the child of a law enforcement officer.
