2 men identified in Thursday fatal crash on Bobby Jones

The Richmond County Coroner’s Office has identified two men who died Thursday in a wreck on Bobby Jones Expressway.


Marcus Hyder, 27, of Evans, and Kyle Davis, 26, of Martinez, died after being hit by a vehicle that drifted out of the eastbound lane of Bobby Jones Expressway near Gordon Highway at 1:19 p.m., Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen said.

Police said the two victims and a third man, 48-year-old Matt Taylor, were in the emergency lane adjusting furniture in a pickup bed when a car driven by Lydia Martin, 61, of Washington, D.C., drifted across the line and hit the three men.

Taylor was taken to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where he remains in critical, but stable, condition.

Police believe Martin might have fallen asleep at the wheel. Toxicology tests have been submitted.

Martin faces charges of failure to maintain lane and two counts of second-degree homicide by vehicle.
