Gloria Jean Woodward, 65, was pronounced dead at the scene of a one-vehicle accident that happened on Chambers Road June 19. Capt. Billy Mitchell of the Jones County Sheriff’s Department said Woodward was traveling east on Chambers Road when she lost control of her 2002 Dodge Durango. He said the SUV overturned and ended up in a nearby creek.
The accident was reported to the sheriff’s department at 3:17 p.m. by a passer-by, and Deputy Harley Davis responded to the call. Mitchell said the victim lived on Chambers Road and was returning home from the store when the accident took place.
He said the cause of the accident and cause of death remains unknown.
James Hudson, 60, was pronounced dead at the scene of a June 21 accident that occurred on Highway 18 West. The one-vehicle accident took place near the intersection with Upper River Road, according to Deputy Kenny Allen.
Hudson was driving a Volkswagen convertible, and he was thrown from the vehicle when it overturned.
Allen said Hudson was not wearing a seat belt and speed is questionable as a contributing factor to the cause of the accident.
