Griffinite killed, two hurt in wreck.
A Griffinite was killed and two others injured in a head on collision of two
vans late yesterday afternoon. The wreck occurred on GA 3 near the Georgia

Steven Lamar Rodgers, 20, son of Mr. and Mrs. John L. (Buddy) Rodgers, one of
the drivers, apparently was killed instantly. His passenger, Milton Kenneth
Starr, 18, of Sunnyside, was pinned in the van for at least 30 minutes and
suffered a hip injury, broken leg, and multiple lacerations.

Larry Williamson, 20, of Route Five, Box 106, who was driving the other van,
suffered a broken arm and leg and hip injuries.
Williamson and Starr were admitted to the Griffin-Spalding Hospital and were
both listed in fair condition there this morning.
According to Griffin police, Rodgers was traveling south on GA 3 when his van
crossed the center line and collided with the Williamson vehicle which was
headed north.

Rodgers was thrown from his van which overturned and landed on top of him,
police said.

Starr was trapped in the vehicle, his legs pinned between the seat and lower
front section. Two wreckers had to pry the vehicle apart to free him.

Hospital ambulance found Williamson lying beside the road.
