Woman injured in April wreck dies

by JOHN A. WINTERS

A 67-year-old woman critically injured in a wreck in Senoia last month has died.

Lynda Adcock’s vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer April 16 on Georgia Highway 16 near Harper Road in Senoia. She was in an induced coma and was taken off life support and died Friday, according to authorities.

She was extricated from her vehicle by Coweta County Fire Department rescue personnel and then air-flighted by helicopter ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center after the accident.

“The preliminary investigation by Senoia Police indicate that (Adcock’s) Chevy Cobalt made a left turn from the westbound right lane of Hwy. 16 across the path of the tractor-trailer truck that was traveling west in the left westbound passing lane,” Senoia Police Major Steven Tomlin said in a statement.

The driver of the semi was identified as Jeffrey Williams, 50, of Smyrna, Ga. No charges were filed. It took about 15 minutes to rescue her from the vehicle.
