Woman dies in I-185 accident

Five cars believed to be involved in wreck

February 9, 2008 

A Columbus woman was killed and two others were injured late Friday in an accident on Interstate 185 in Harris County, the Georgia State Patrol said.

Patricia Myers, 38, was driving in the southbound lane near the Ga. 315 exit around 8:30 p.m. when her Kia Sorento was struck by Chevrolet van, Georgia State Trooper Chris Norman said.

The van, an older model carrying Clarence and Alondra Jones of College Park, Ga., started flipping, and both the father and daughter were ejected from the vehicle.

Myers got out of her car and apparently was run over by an oncoming car, a Honda Accord, Norman said. She was pronounced dead at the scene at 9:55 p.m., Harris County Coroner Dan Colberg said. A fourth car, also a Honda Accord, came upon the accident and struck Myers' Kia Sorento again.

The two Honda Accords were driven by Mamade Nabe of Phenix City and Christopher Albis of Toronto, Ohio. Norman said investigators are still trying to determine which car hit Myers.

Norman said investigators believe there was a fifth car involved in the accident, but he did not have a description of the vehicle.

Clarence Jones, 50, and Alondra Jones, 21, were taken to The Medical Center for treatment for injuries. Alondra Jones was treated and released, while her father was undergoing surgery.

Nabe, 52, and Albis, 28, were not injured.

The coroner said Myers had recently moved to Columbus. Her car had a Fayette County license plate.

The case remains under investigation.
