Man survives spectacular Hwy. 36 crash; listed as in fair condition

A man walked (with help) away from a spectacular crash on Hwy. 36 East Monday afternoon. He was taken by ambulance to a Macon trauma center after being extricated from his mangled truck. The man was driving an older model pickup truck west on Hwy. 36 when he lost control in a curve, ran off the north side of the roadway, took out a highway sign and then traveled another 80 yards in the ditch before striking a driveway with culvert at 728 Hwy. 36 East. The truck went airborne and hit a pine tree about 20 feet off the ground then struck another pine which snapped off and came to rest on the truck which was totaled. The first 911 dispatch went out at 3:30 p.m. UPDATE: The driver has been identified by the state patrol as Timothy D. Jefferson, 33, of Barnesville. He told troopers he fell asleep prior to losing control. UPDATE 2: A spokesperson for the medical center reports Jefferson is in fair condition.
