Default Four Killed in Mud Bog accident in Ga.

Four killed in mud-bogging accident

Associated Press
Published on: 12/29/07

GRIFFIN, Ga. Four people were killed and two people were injured on Friday after the driver of a truck was driving in the mud and struck two trees.

Two people survived the crash, which authorities said was a result of alcohol and reckless driving. Georgia State Patrol Trooper J.T. McMillan said the vehicle, a Ford Bronco, burned completely.

The names of the victims are not being released, but include the driver, a 24-year-old woman, a 36-year-old woman, a 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl. The children were riding in the back seat of the vehicle.

A 36-year-old woman and a 4-year-old boy were expected to be taken to Atlanta Medical Center.

McMillan said the truck was likely traveling at about 70 mph at impact and that no one was wearing seat belts.

I was thinking the same thing.

I'd be surprised if it was at an organized Mud Bog. Sounds more like they were joy riding in one of their hubby/boyfriends truck.

I can't really feel bad for their mistake, but sure sucks for the families involved.

People have a hard enough time drunk on 55 mph roads but 70 mph through mud and winding trails is just asking for trouble. At least one person in that truck had to have known that.

READ CLOSER: They were "mud bogging" on a dirt road, not AT a mud bog event.

It also appears they burned to death.

Pisses me right off that it is labeled as a "mud bog". That is negative press at it's best.

It should read "drunk woman loses control and hits tree while driving too fast on a gravel road".

4 Dead, 2 Hurt 'Mud-Bogging' in Ga.
Quote:

GRIFFIN, Ga. — A sport utility vehicle speeding down a muddy road slammed into trees and exploded, killing four people, including two children, and injuring two others, authorities said.
Investigators believe alcohol, recent rain and reckless driving may have been factors in Friday night's crash of the Ford Bronco, which burned completely, state Trooper J.T. McMillan said.
"They were out there, playing around, mud-bogging on the dirt road," McMillan said. "They got stuck in the dirt and were pulled out by a dump truck. They sped off down the road and the driver struck two trees."
The SUV was traveling around 70 mph at impact, and the occupants weren't wearing seat belts, he said.
The Georgia State Patrol had not released the victims' names but identified them as a 24-year-old woman who was driving, a 36-year-old woman, a 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl. The children were riding in the back seat.
A 36-year-old woman was being treated at the Atlanta Medical Center, but her condition was not available Saturday. A 4-year-old boy also survived the crash with only scratches.
Neither is believed to have life-threatening injuries.
Griffin is about 37 miles south of Atlanta.
its a bad deal all the way around. the way the story was wrote the bad guys are them "Mudboggers". rather then them "drunk drivers"

I dont think ao woman was driving.

Regardless of the sex of the driver that is a stupid person who did a stupid thing.
