Ex-Ag commissioner Irvin in hospital


Former state Agriculture Commissioner Tommy Irvin is in intensive care at Habersham Medical Center recovering from injuries suffered in a car accident last week.

“We’re continuing to get good reports every day and he’s progressing right along,” his  daughter, Londa Irvin Wilson told The Times of Gainesville this morning.

Irvin, who retired last year after serving in the post since 1969, was driving alone when he was involved in a two-car accident in Toccoa, she said.

He was then taken to the hospital in Demorest. He is in stable condition, according to the hospital. Further details about the accident weren’t immediately available.
