COVINGTON — There was a fatal head-on crash on Ga. Highway 162 at County Line Road in Newton County in the early morning hours Wednesday, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

James Stanley Moore, 59, of Covington sustained fatal injuries.

"It occurred around 4:20 a.m. …The injured was flown to Atlanta Medical Center. Alcohol/drugs is not a factor," said Department of Public Safety spokesman Franka Young.

Troopers and the Specialized Crash Reconstruction Team are still investigating the crash.

According to Young, a Ford Ranger (Vehicle 1) was traveling south on State Route 162 while a Ford F-150 (Vehicle 2) was traveling north on State Route 162. Vehicle 1 crossed over into the Ford 150's lane resulting in a head-on collision.

The use of this picture blown up on the front page of this newspaper is probably the most worst example of "shock" salesmanship I have ever seen! Us, as a family and the community has lost a very good man. Was there no thought of his family seeing this......the very same vehicle his life was cut so short in? Very poor choice from the editor and staff of this and other affiliated newspapers......
