UPDATE: Victim in fatal JR Allen Pkwy. accident allegedly assaulted driver prior to crash

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Muscogee County Coroner confirmed that one person is dead following an accident on an on-ramp in Columbus.

The accident was on an on-ramp going to JR Allen Parkway from Bradley Park Drive on Monday.

Muscogee County Chief Deputy Coroner Freeman Worley has identified the victim as 25-year-old Jeremie Markey Perry.

According to the CPD accident report, the female driver was traveling west onto the ramp from Bradley Park Drive when Perry, who was the passenger, pushed her head into the steering wheel during an argument about a loan.

The car then went down the embankment, hitting three trees before overturning onto the roof.

The driver of the car was ejected, but Perry was not, and was dead at the scene.

His body has been sent for autopsy, and the accident is still under investigation. It is unclear if the driver will face any charges.
