At 4:08 p.m., Sept. 5, a Georgia State Patrol trooper was sent to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Ga. 133 and Ga. 122, according to a state patrol report.

The driver of one vehicle, a man from Valrico, Fla., told the trooper he was heading north on Ga. 133 when he saw another vehicle heading east on Ga. 122 when it was heading into the intersection.

The driver of the other vehicle — William Michael Fousek, 53, of Ray City — was declared dead at the scene, the report states.
