Evans wreck kills Grovetown man

One man was killed today in an early morning single-vehicle crash in Evans.


Arlie Joseph Allen, 20, of Grovetown, was pronounced dead around 2 a.m. by Columbia County Deputy Coroner Harriett Garrison.

Allen, a student at Georgia Military College, was driving a 2001 Ford F-250 pickup south on Hereford Farm Road when he apparently lost control, possibly by running off the shoulder and over-correcting, Garrison said.

Allen’s truck slammed into a utility pole at Calloway Road Extension. He died instantly from multiple body and head trauma, Garrison said, adding it was unclear whether Allen had been wearing a seat belt.

Allen was the vehicle’s only occupant. Toxicology tests will be performed by the GBI crime lab, Garrison said.
