Norcross High Hoops Star Darrian George, Three Others Killed in Single-Vehicle Accident on Florida Highway

Gwinnett County high school hoops star Darrian George, stepmother Tiffany Bradshaw and two small kids, killed in single-vehicle automobile crash on I-75 as family traveled to Miami for holiday weekend.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Gwinnett County high school basketball player, Darrian George, who was among four family members killed in an automobile accident early Saturday in Florida. According to media reports, the family was heading to Miami for a weekend, when Darrian lost control of the Chevrolet Tahoe on I-75.

The SUV reportedly traveled across several southbound lanes, then overturned several times before landing on its roof in the northbound lane. Six of the eight people in the vehicle were ejected in the single-vehicle wreck. George, who attended Norcross High School, and his stepmother Tiffany Bradshaw died at the scene. Two kids, ages seven and three, died after being transported to a Florida hospital. George’s father, Kurt George and Jacquine Barow suffered minor injuries, while Jaid Mandosa, Kurt George’s mother-in-law, is listed in critical condition. Seven of the eight people in the vehicle were not wearing seatbelts.

This is a sad, sad turn of events. I cannot stress enough that it is imperative that you wear your seatbelts when traveling in a moving vehicle. You never know when an accident will and can occur. I have to wonder what happened to distract Darrian George as he drove? Did he doze off at the wheel?
