A 39-year-old Hephzibah man has been identified as the victim in a fatal, late-night traffic accident.

According to a statement released by the Richmond County Coroner's Office, Kendrick Pace, of the 4200 block of Cap Chat Street, was killed shortly before midnight in an accident on Windsor Spring Road.

Mark Bowen, chief deputy coroner, said Mr. Pace was the only occupant of a 1989 Chevrolet Celebrity driving in the 4200 block of Windsor Spring, when his vehicle crossed into the northbound lanes causing a head-on collision with a Dodge Durango. The driver of the Dodge, whose name wasn’t available, was taken to a hospital for non life-threatening injuries, Mr. Bowen said.

Mr. Pace was taken to Medical College of Georgia Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead about 11:30 p.m.

Well, they are not releasing

Well, they are not releasing the name of the Dodge driver, because that person is expected to live. My condolences lie with the dead man.

Who is SargentMidTown to

Who is SargentMidTown to judge anyone? Why would you say something negative about someone you did not even know. You don't know what happened. Only GOD is the judge!!! I know the man that I love heart is unburdened now. He is free from pain. He is with his momma and his son and is happy. I pray for the people in the other car. I know he would never hurt anyone on purpose. He would give you the shirt off of his back. Please everyone who reads this tell the people you love everyday. You never know when the last time you are able to say it. KP was loved and respected by so many people. I ask GOD to help all of us get past this terrible pain in our hearts. I love you KP even though I did not tell you everday. You did tell me. I don't know what I am going to do without you. Kendrick Vernard Pace is loved by many understood by few. Diesel will miss his daddy and the hugs he gave him.

Dirtyred, First I would like

Dirtyred, First I would like to say I am sorry for your lost. However, you are not the only one who lost someone. My son Kendrick Vernard Pace Jr. has lost him also. The sad part is that KP Sr. never tried to get to know him. Im sure he played the good guy role with you, but he left an open hole in my son's heart. So now I have to answer the questions of "Who was he?" What was he like? Why didn't he try to get to know me? Did he want me or not? So you tell me how would you handle these questions. What do you tell KP jr. who has lost his dad? Besides that you are named after him. A man he only shares a name with and nothing more. I am open for suggestions.

Here is another one who sits

Here is another one who sits in judgement. If Kendrick Vernard Pace Jr. is KP's son 'Where has he been?'. If you wanted your son to know his father a man you had a child with and now after he has passed away you say "WHO WAS HE?, WHAT WAS HE LIKE?, WHY DIDN"T HE TRY TO GET TO KNOW ME?, DID HE WANT ME OR NOT? Where were you?????????? Why didn't you as a mother try to get your son and his father together???? He lived in the same house for 16 yrs. I would not have to handle those questions because my son knew his father. KP did not have to try and play the good guy he was. Obviously you did not know him. If you going to have child with a man make sure you know him. Anyone can pick a name........ I am sure that it is shared with several other people. If your son would like to get to know is family and is committed to it himself that would be a good thing. Here is some suggestions i can give you. Tell your son everday that you LOVE him, make sure you know what his up to and who his friends are, keep him on the right track so that he can become somebody. That is what the man your son did not know would have done.

R.I.P Kendrick Pace! or KP or

R.I.P Kendrick Pace! or KP or Grandmaster KP SKI (that was his break dancing name) LOL. KP is a great friend of mine, better than that KP is my brother. I met KP over 20yrs ago when he moved into my neighborhood in Brunswick. We became the best of friends. There was not a day went by thatme, him and my other two homies didn't meet and talk. We had a good neighborhood and everybody was always cool with each other. I can take up everyones bandwidth if I start reciting stories about KP...LOL..just thinking about them eases my heart. He is so CRAZY (in a fun way). He should have went to Hollywood, because he is such a character. BUT most of all he is a good friend. Someone I could always depend on to give straight advice and always be a good listener. I am glad the Lord put KP on my path through life. I know that emotions are high. Pain is overrflowing. I pray for the other person in the accident, his and KP's family and close friends. I ask that each person please call the ones that you love and express your Godly love for them and find it in your heart to forgive those that tresspass you. R.I.P brother
