Thursday was a bittersweet day for the Myers family and their friends. Loved ones say they were thankful Claudia Myers was released from Memorial Health. But sadly, now they must prepare to say goodbye to Claudia's daughter, Mariah.
Mariah Myers was killed in a head-on collision Tuesday night on Georgia Highway 99, near the town of Eulonia, in McIntosh County. Mariah was a teacher in McIntosh County and graduated from Albany State University.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, Tim Scott, the driver of the blue Crown Victoria, was speeding eastbound down Georgia State Route 99. Officials say Scott was passing a car in front of him when he slammed head on into Myers' car.
On Thursday, Memorial Health said Scott remains in critical condition. His passenger, Andre Jackson, has been upgraded to fair condition.
Sadly, this is the second time tragedy has struck the Myers family. A family friend says a few years ago, Mariah's dad, Joel Myers, also died in a car crash. It happened just a few miles from where she was killed Tuesday night.
