A fatal car accident in Bainbridge, Georgia has taken the life of a four-year-old boy.

Georgia State Patrol said Remington Waldon died after his aunt's Jeep was struck by a truck Tuesday, March 6th. Emily Newsome was attempting to turn left onto Hubert Dollar Drive from Old Quincy Highway, when her Jeep was hit from behind by a Dodge Dakota pickup truck driven by Bryan Harrell. GSP said the Jeep was thrown off the road into a telephone pole. Harrell's truck crashed into a tree.

"When people are going home it's a little busier. At this time of day it's probably average traffic, school traffic, people getting out of school. We don't have a lot of accidents at this intersection, but we have been known to have some," said Sgt. John Vanlandingham of the Georgia State Patrol.

Newsome was able to escape her burning Jeep, but according to GSP, Remington was trapped inside and died. Newsome was transported to Memorial Hospital. She was treated for minor injuries and released. Charges are pending against the driver of the other vehicle, Bryan Harrell. Seargeant Vanlandingham said drugs or alcohol are not suspected.

    How sad for this family; his aunt will never get over this tragic event. This would be my worse nightmare to live and unable to save the child that was with me. My prayers to the families involved and special prayer to this aunt. God was calling him home to be the next angel.
