Griffin woman killed in Coweta crash

by Sarah Fay Campbell

A Griffin woman injured in a single-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon in Senoia has died.

Yvonne C. Nash, 60, of Griffin was traveling southbound on Ga. Hwy. 85 at 1:05 p.m. when she lost control, according to Gordy Wright with the Georgia State Patrol.

Nash’s 1997 Ford Explorer was traveling down a hill in the snowy and slushy conditions. Wright said that, according to investigating Trooper Sgt. D. J. Irvin, the rear tires on the Explorer “were below the minimum required tread depth and caused the driver to lose control."

The vehicle ran off the road into a ditch and overturned. Irvin used an axe to break windows on the vehicle to reach Nash, and he and several others on the scene pulled her from the vehicle. Nash was transported to Piedmont Fayette Hospital, where she later died.
