Fatal Accident In Thomaston

An accident at the intersection of U.S. 19 and Deluxe Circle has claimed the life of an 83 year old Thomaston woman.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, Thelma Louise Hilley of Highway Street pulled out of Deluxe Circle into U.S. 19 and was struck in the drivers side by a north bound Mazda pickup.

The pickup driver, Amy Michelle Posey of Ann Arms Court is pregnant and was flown to a Macon hospital as a precaution. Two passengers in the pickup were not injured.

Ms. Hilley was attempting to cross U.S. 19 to attend services at the Church of God.


  1. What a tragedy and loss of a very sweet lady. This is at least the second member of that church to die in an accident at that intersection. I don't understand why a traffic light has not been installed there.

  2. i think a traffic light needs to be there it is hard to judge traffic there
