Leon County Fatal Accident


A Buffalo man was killed Monday in an early morning accident in Leon County.

The accident happened around 6:15 a.m., less than a mile north of Jewett on Highway 79.

21-year-old Raymond Harrison was driving north on Highway 79, when he crossed into oncoming traffic and hit the back of an 18-wheeler, according to DPS Trooper John Franks.

That caused Harrison to collide head-on with another car that was driving behind the 18-wheeler.

Harrison was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the other car was taken to an area hospital with minor injuries.
The driver of the 18-wheeler was not injured.

Harrison was reportedly weaving on the road prior to the accident, and alcohol or fatigue may have played a role in the crash, according to Trooper Franks.

The accident remains under investigation.
