Single vehicle crash kills Box Springs man

A single-vehicle wreck on Miller Road in Columbus claimed the life of a Box Springs, Ga, man.

Larry Beegle, 60, was traveling south east in a 1990 Honda Accord when, for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle shortly before 8 p.m. near Pittman Street, according to a police report.

The car spun counter-clockwise, jumped the concrete median, then continued across both west-bound lanes before striking a pine tree on the roadside.

Beegle was transported to The Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 8:30 p.m., Muscogee County Coroner Bill Thrower said.

The Columbus Police Department's motor squad is investigating the crash.
