I was driving home from work a few days ago and came upon an accident scene a few miles from home. Lots of emergency vehicles, I had to turn around and take a different route home. Turns out a trailer came loose from a pick-up and ended up causing a fatal accident. I know the guys on here are the safest anywhere, but if you see someone else towing something unsafe please say something to them.

Tiphanie Fletcher, 25, of Fayetteville was traveling southbound last Friday on Ga. Highway 92 near Pond Trace when a trailer being towed by a Chevy Silverado traveling northbound came unhooked and crossed over into the southbound lane striking her Ford Explorer on the front left side, according to Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb.
Her vehicle then left the roadway and down an embankment coming to rest after striking a tree. Ms. Fletcher was transported in serious condition initially to Fayette Piedmont on Sept. 26 and then to Atlanta Medical Center, where she later died as a result of her injuries, Babb said.
“Drugs and alcohol are not suspected of playing a role in the collision. Traffic investigators are still trying to determine all the factors that contributed to the incident,” Babb said.
