Two dead in accident in Dodge County

Georgia State Patrol is investigating a double fatal accident that happened Tuesday afternoon in Dodge County.

According to Sheriff Lynn Sheffield, it happened on Highway 165, which runs from Rhine to Chauncey.

The wreck involved a trash truck and a tractor trailer. 

Dodge County Coroner, Joe Smith, says the collision killed 39-year-old Jerry Jeff Holton and 40-year old Angela Melissa Holton who were in the semi. The two were married. 

Smith says the driver of the trash truck was taken to the hospital in serious condition. His name has not yet been released. 

Neighbors told WMAZ that this is not the first serious accident they've seen on 165 that involved an 18-wheeler. 

The wreck is still under investigation.
