By Pat Cooper

A Peachtree City man was one of the 17 people killed over the three-day holiday weekend. That is 11 more than the 2013 numbers.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, 17 people died in traffic accidents from Friday at 6 p.m. through Monday at midnight of the Memorial Day weekend.
At 9:54 p.m. on Saturday night, troopers were called to the scene of a two-car accident at the intersection Fischer Road and Westminster Village Boulevard. According to assistant Fire Chief Mitch Coggin of the Coweta County Fire Department, both drivers were entrapped in their vehicles, one lying on its side and one in a ditch. Coggin said that the driver in the ditch, Michael Allen Naber, 55, of Peachtree City, was dead on the scene.
The other driver, Robert Charles Diaz, was extricated from his car, transported by ambulance to Northgate High School and was then transported to the Atlanta Medical Center. Reports indicate that Diaz may have crossed the center line from his northbound side in front of Naber’s southbound vehicle.
The accident is still under investigation by the Georgia State Patrol Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team.
