Fatal accident backs up traffic for hours on I-185

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. - One man is dead after police say he was ejected from his pickup truck during a crash on I-185 Saturday afternoon.

The two-vehicle crash occurred in the Northbound lanes just North of the St. Mary's Road exit when the driver of the truck rear-ended another vehicle.

Officials say 27-year-old Mitchell Lee Miles lost control of the vehicle and hit the guard rail before he was ejected and died.

Traffic was redirected from the St. Mary's Northbound entrance to I-185 as officials closed the lanes to investigate the scene.

No one from the other vehicle was injured.
