Two Dead After Separate Collisions In George County

GEORGE COUNTY (WLOX) -- In just two days, two people have died in separate car collisions in George County. Both fatal collisions happened near the Benndale community.

The first happened Friday night, just before 6:30pm. Patricia Danley, 31, of Pascagoula was driving on southbound on Highway 57, just four miles south of Benndale. Her car ran off the road, collided with a tree, and caught on fire.

According to Jackson County Coroner Vicki Broadus, Danley died on the scene from burns she sustained in the collision.

Danley had two passengers in her vehicle Friday night. They were transported to the University of South Alabama Medical Center. Their conditions and identities are unknown at this time.

The second fatal collision happened Saturday morning at 7:00am, and involved two cars.

Highway Patrol Spokesman Johnny Poulos said Lashawn Fairley, 30, of Lucedale died after her car and another ran head on into each other. The vehicles were traveling in east and westbound lanes of Highway 26, just three miles east of Benndale.

The driver of the other vehicle was taken to a nearby hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

The cause of both collisions are still under investigation.
