An Augusta man, 82, died Thursday night after failing to yield at a stop sign.

Harry James Newbold, of Clinton Road, was driving his 2003 Ford Ranger east on Scott Road shortly before 10 p.m. when he failed to yield at a the stop sign at Peach Orchard Road, Richmond County sheriff’s Sgt. Danny Whitehead said.

The pickup was hit by a northbound 2003 Chevrolet Impala on Peach Orchard.

Newbold died around 11 p.m. at Medical College of Georgia Hospital. An autopsy ruled he died of blunt force trauma with associated cardiovascular problems, Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Bowen said.

The other driver, Antonio Montez Brown, 33, was cited with driving under the influence and driving while his license was revoked. Police said he is a declared habitual violator.

Newbold’s son said election signs at the intersection might have helped obscure his father’s view of traffic.

"The Impala’s driver, Antonio Montez Brown, 33, was cited for driving under the influence and driving while his license was revoked. Police said he is a declared habitual violator.

WHY WHY WHY

RAZORDOG, SURELY IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO ASK WHY. HE'S STILL DRIVING BECAUSE HE HAS A TOTAL DISREGARD FOR THE LAW, THE SAFETY OF OTHERS AS WELL AS HIS OWN. UNLESS SOMEONE IS GOING TO BABYSIT HIM, AS SOON AS HE SOBERS UP (OR GETS HIS BOND) HE WILL BE OUT ON THE STREET AGAIN. MAKES YOU WONDER ABOUT THOSE "SECOND" CHANCES, MR. ROUNDTREE KEEPS TALKING ABOUT!!! AS SAD AS THIS INCIDENT IS, MAYBE GOD TOOK MR. NEWBOLD WHEN HE DID TO KEEP MR. BROWN FROM KILLING HIMSELF OR ANOTHER PERSON(S).

My initial post

was cold and my apologies the family.

at the time it was based on a limited information Staff Report citing New model pickup vs. Old model car. No names, ages or indications of life threatening injuries in the limited information contained in the initial report.

Once again my apologies the family.

BTW: whose Election signs were at the corner?
