    Most of us love to eat, and if we can help out a worthwhile charity at the same time it's icing on the cake, or ketchup on the burger, to use a phrase more befitting of this week's Military Matters.More >>
    The Four Winds Restaurant in Cusseta is known for the world-famous Ranger Burger, and it sold a bunch of them recently… enough to raise $1,500 for charity.

    The promotion, called Grubbin to Give, put 50 percent of the day's proceeds in the coffers of the Warrior Outreach Program.

(WTVM) -

Fatal crash investigators with the Georgia State Patrol (GSP) are searching for a small gray car, possibly a Suzuki, in connection with a fatal crash in Harris County on June 25. 

The crash claimed the life of Galen Stuart Mallory, age 20, from West Point, and injured three others.

On June 25, at approximately 6:35 p.m., State Troopers from GSP LaGrange responded to a fatal crash on Georgia Highway 219 approximately 2 miles south of GA 18 in Harris County. GA 219 is also known as Whitesville Road.  A witness to the crash described the at-fault vehicle as a small gray car, possibly a Suzuki, being driven by a younger white male with a short haircut.  

The gray car slowed down after the crash but continued south on GA 219.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or the driver is asked to call the Georgia State Patrol Post in Lagrange at 706-845-4104, or the Harris County Sheriff's Office at 706-628-4211. 

According to the witness, the gray vehicle crossed the centerline and forced a northbound 2003 Lincoln Aviator to take evasive action.  The Aviator left the roadway on the east edge, came back on the roadway, crossed the centerline and was hit by Mr. Mallory's 2004 Kia Spectra. 

After impact, the Lincoln was engulfed in flames.  Bystanders pulled the occupants of the Lincoln from the vehicle and then used a tow strap to pull the Kia away from the burning vehicle.
