A 52-year-old music teacher at M.E. Freeman Elementary School in Warrenton has died as a result of injuries received in a head-on collision last week in McDuffie County.
Coroner Rhusha Mack said Marilyn "Betty" Campbell, of Lincolnton, died last Sunday at the Medical College of Georgia Hospital in Augusta.
Mrs. Campbell was taken to MCG by a medical helicopter, following a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer truck on the Lincolnton Highway near Fish Dam Road last Thursday.
The truck driver, whose address was listed as Warrenton, was not hurt, said Georgia State Patrol Sgt. Perry Hobbs of the Thomson post.
Sgt. Hobbs said the collision occurred about 6:20 a.m. after Mrs. Campbell's mini-van crossed the centerline. The crash still is under investigation.
Mrs. Campbell is the third person to be killed on roadways in McDuffie County in a little more than a week.
A head-on crash nearly two weeks ago on the Wrens Highway claimed the lives of Steven Wilson, 20, of Boneville and 16-year-old Chrystal Williams, a junior at Thomson High School. Two other persons from that same crash remain in critical condition at MCG.
