***UPDATE: 01/27/13***


The Georgia State Patrol has released the identities of Wednesday night’s deadly crash that killed one and seriously injured another in Bartow County.
Around 10:30pm, Troopers state that Emerson residents 43-year-old Christopher Edward Lary and his wife, 33-year-old Elizabeth Mary, were driving on GA 293 when Mr. Lary is reported to have lost control in a curve. The Ford Super Duty Truck left the roadway, traveled down an embankment, overturned and hit a tree. The collision killed Mrs. Lary and gravely injured Mr. Lary, who was airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta, where his condition remains unknown. 



One person was killed and another was seriously injured as the result of a single-vehicle crash on Highway 293 Wednesday night, in a location between Emerson and Cartersville in Bartow County.

The death was confirmed Thursday morning by Bartow County Coroner Joel Guyton. The identity of the victim has not been made public at this time though Guyton said the deceased is a 33-year-old white female. She is also a Bartow resident.

The victim’s husband was air-lifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta with serious injuries.

The crash occurred on Highway 293 just south of Old River Road at about 10:30 pm Wednesday night as the driver left the roadway in his Ford F-250 truck. The cause of the wreck remains unknown.
