A 95-year-old woman who survived a head-on collision earlier this month in Athens has died. On October 13, Athens-Clarke County police were notified that Mary Case died due to complications caused by her injuries.
On the morning of October 5, police say Case was driving a Toyota Prius that collided head-on with an Acura RDX on West Broad Street, just west of Sycamore Drive.
The wreck sent Case and the two occupants of the other vehicle to the hospital with what appeared at the time to be non-life-threatening injuries. Case suffered a suspected broken ankle, police say.
She is now the 21st person to die as a result of a motor vehicle crash in Athens-Clarke County this year.
