A tragic incident unfolded in eastern Walton County, resulting in the loss of two lives in a head-on collision. Among the victims was a woman from Mansfield. The crash involving two vehicles occurred at approximately 8:20 a.m. on Wednesday along Georgia 186, close to Moina Michael Road, situated about 2 miles north of Good Hope.
The sequence of events reveals that Chealse Lockhart, a 17-year-old resident of Good Hope, was driving west on Georgia 186. While navigating a left curve, her 2003 Ford Escape veered across the double yellow centre lines into the opposing eastbound lane, leading to a collision with a 2014 Chevrolet Sonic.
Following the impact, the Chevrolet veered off the road’s south shoulder and eventually came to a halt without control. Meanwhile, the Ford spun counterclockwise and ultimately stopped in the roadway without being under control. Tragically, the driver of the Chevrolet, a 24-year-old named Ashley Allen from Mansfield, was declared deceased at the scene of the accident.
Chealse Lockhart was initially taken to Piedmont Walton Hospital for medical attention and was later airlifted to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. Unfortunately, despite efforts to save her, she succumbed to her injuries.
Lockhart, a former student of Monroe Area High School who was enrolled at Foothills Charter High School, met this unfortunate fate. It’s worth noting that authorities did not suspect the involvement of alcohol or drugs in the crash, according to the troopers’ assessment.
