Traffic Accident With Injuries and Road Closed In North Macon

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a traffic accident with injuries that occurred on Bass Rd at Westchester Dr. just before 05:00pm Sunday evening. It was reported that a 2008 Freightliner Box Truck, driven by 31yr old James Trivette Jr., of North Carolina, was traveling North on Bass Rd when he lost control of the vehicle and went off the road striking a power pole. Trivette and his passenger were both taken to the Navicent Health Medical Center where they are listed in stable condition.

Due to the power pole being knocked down the Bass Rd will be blocked between Westchester Dr. and Providence Dr. until Georgia Power can get the power lines back up out of the road. Georgia Power is estimating that it will take approximately six to seven hours to fix the power lines. Please avoid the area until the roadway is reopened.

The traffic accident is under investigation. Anyone with information in reference to this accident is urged to contact the Bibb Sheriff’s Office at 478-751-7500.
