Deadly Wreck in Bleckley County

A Cochran man died in a Bleckley County car crash early Friday morning.

Sergeant K.E. Deloach at the Georgia State Patrol post in Dublin says it happened just before 1am Friday on Ruth Church Road.

He says 30 year old Christopher Travis Long of Cochran was driving a 1993 Jeep Cherokee and lost control of the vehicle near a sharp curve.

Sergeant Deloach says Long over-corrected and hit a tree.

Long was pronounced dead at the scene.

All four passengers were taken to the Medical Center of Central Georgia, one by life flight.

Toxicology reports will determine if alcohol played role in the crash.
