A Baldwin County T-bone crash between two vehicles caused a child to be ejected from one of the vehicles and onto the roadway. The collision took place on the evening of Tuesday, February 16. It was reported to the authorities at around 5 p.m.
According to the details shared by the Georgia State Patrol, one of the vehicles involved in the collision was identified as a black Ford Mustang. The other was a 2008 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck.
The Baldwin County T-bone crash happened along the U.S. Highway 441, also known as the Georgia Route 24. The precise location was the Waffle House located along the highway close to Lake Sinclair.
The Ford Mustang had just pulled out of the Waffle House and tried to get on the highway when it was hit by the pickup truck. The driver of the Mustang was identified as Dezeree Ingle, 30, of Milledgeville. The pickup truck was being driven by Michael Mixon, 53, of Eatonton.
Ingle had pulled her vehicle onto the highway when the pickup truck hit the Mustang near the front right tire area. The pickup was headed southbound at the time and was traveling in the left lane. The impact of the collision forced the Mustang to spin counterclockwise. The spinning caused a child traveling with Ingle to be ejected from the vehicle and land on the roadway. The Mustang came to a stop in the middle of the center lane of the southbound side.
The child, aged 2, was not securely buckled to a car seat which was in the vehicle at the time of the crash. Fortunately, the child avoided any serious injuries. Once the first responders and paramedics reached the scene, Ingle, Mixon, and the child were treated for minor injuries. Ingle was charged with failure to yield right-of-way.
