News

An Eastman man died in a possible alcohol-related wreck during a police chase early Saturday, according to Trooper Jeffery Taylor, Georgia State Patrol.

The wreck happened just after midnight on Saturday at the intersection of Sweet Home Church Road and Old Milan Road.

Milan's police chief spotted a 1998 Ford F-150 swerving, Taylor said.  After the chief's cruiser got behind the truck, the truck sped up and lost control. 

The chase lasted a few miles, crossing into Dodge County, he said.

24-year-old Travis Johnson of Eastman died on the scene, Taylor said.  Another man was also in the truck.

Taylor says the other man's name has not been released.  

He says they're not sure who was driving the truck.  No arrests have been made. 

The Georgia State Patrol post in Helena is investigating the crash. The Dodge County Sheriff's Office assisted at the crash scene.
