Jamal Lovett, 7, and two others were flown to Medical College of Georgia Hospital, where Jamal was pronounced dead at 9:07 a.m.
Southbound Peach Orchard Road remained closed for hours after the crash while police collected evidence.
Richmond County sheriff’s Capt. Scott Gay said a white Honda Accord was northbound on Peach Orchard Road about 8:20 a.m. when the driver tried to turn left onto Willis Foreman Road and collided with a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup.
The pickup struck the Honda on the passenger side, causing the car to split in two and the child in the back seat to be ejected.
