Authorities tell us on Sunday just after 6 p.m., a 2004 Mazda 6s driven by Tammy Morris of Chatsworth was traveling west on Wilbanks Road, and took a curve too fast.
The car left the road and hit a concrete ditch tile with its front.
It then spun around before finally stopping.
Morris was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The accident prompted an urgent message about safety on the Facebook page of the Murray County Sheriff's Department.
The statement reads, "Friends it has been a deadly week on the roads in Murray County. We had another fatality today bringing the total to 5 people who have lost their lives this week due to automobile related accidents in our county. Please make it a priority to drive with due regard for yourself and others. It only takes a short moment to change your or another's life forever - including those of your family, friends and loved ones. Don't drive distracted, DUI or engage in anything that makes you a less safe driver or pedestrian. We want ZERO fatalities. To put this into numbers for 2014 we already have more deaths on our roads this year, than for the entire year of 2013 and we still have 4 months to go before the count resets. Let's stop the counting today!! We want #zerofatalities for the the remainder of 2014. If you see anyone that is possibly DUI, driving reckless or aggressive, or being a less safe driver then please dial 911 immediately to report them to law enforcement. We will need a good vehicle description, tag number if possible and direction of travel when you call. Thank you for helping us to make Murray County, GA safer for everyone. We hope everyone has a safe #LABORDAY tomorrow and #Drivesober. Please share this message with your friends."5th Traffic Death in Murray County in As Many Days
