CONYERS — A Lithonia woman was killed in a single-vehicle accident sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.
According to Gordy Wright, public information officer with the Georgia State Patrol, a Conyers Police Department officer spotted debris in the roadway on Dogwood Drive west of Bryant Street at about 8 a.m. Saturday and found a 1999 Dodge Ram pickup truck down an embankment.
Killed in the crash was 22-year-old Tiffany Nicole Odom. According to Wright, "(Odom) was westbound on Dogwood when the vehicle ran off the road, struck a mailbox and culvert, traveled through a parking lot, vaulted down an embankment, struck several trees and came to rest on its top. Ms. Odom was partially ejected. She died in the crash."
Wright said a blood test would be administered to determine if alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident.
