One woman was killed and perhaps others injured in a Tuesday evening traffic accident at Ga. 53 and Burlington Road in Shannon.

The Floyd County Coroner’s Office confirms there was one fatality in the accident that occurred around 6:30 p.m. based on earlier reports from Floyd 911. The accident had traffic stalled at the busy intersection.

The Floyd County Police Department is in charge of the investigation. Thursday evening, spokesman Jerome Poole said the “report has not been finished.” We’ll have updates as soon as it becomes available.

Friends have identified her as a Bartow County resident but we’re awaiting final confirmation.
