A Lyerly man was issued a citation and a warning after an accident on Shinbone Valley Road in Menlo that took out around 200 feet of fencing around a pasture.
The Georgia State Patrol said that twenty-two year old Kyle Edwards of Lyerly lost control of his 1989 Chevy pickup while negotiating a curve about four-tenths of a mile from the intersection of Highway 48 on Shinbone Valley Road. Edwards left the roadway and damaged around 200 feet of fence on the property of Eddie Massey in Menlo.
Troopers said that Edwards failed to report the accident to law enforcement and only reported it after contacting Luallens Wrecker Service to tow the vehicle from the scene. Edwards was issued citations for failure to report an accident and issued a warning for faulty equipment.
