A Richmond Hill man was killed in a vehicle accident when he lost control of his 2002 Ford F-150 truck shortly after 4:p.m. Saturday on Islands Highway in Midway.
According to Georgia State Patrol Trooper David Laff, Larry Curtis Stewart, 59, was traveling eastbound on Islands Highway when he failed to maintain control of his vehicle. Laff said Stewart lost control of the vehicle when his right side tires left the rode way causing Stewart to overcorrect. Stewart crossed the roadway into the oncoming lane, entered the shoulder of the road and struck a palm tree. Stewart was pronounced dead at the scene. Stewart has two passengers in the vehicle with him. The passenger sustained a broken left wrist. The rear passenger was not injured.
