Investigators Believe Waresboro Man Fell Asleep At Wheel

Staff Report A Waresboro man was air-lifted to a Florida hospital early this morning after his pickup truck ran off U.S. 1 near the Ware-Charlton counties line and overturned into the median. Investigators said they believe Joshua Leon Taylor, 38, Oak View Road, who was ejected as the vehicle rolled, might have fallen asleep at the wheel. “Mr. Taylor was somewhat responsive,” Ware Sheriff’s Capt. Neil Skerratt said. “He told investigators he did not remember what happened, that he just woke up in the water.” Taylor, who landed in a puddle in the highway median, was thought to be bleeding internally when he was loaded onto a medivac helicopter that landed on the highway near Mile Marker 1, just inside Ware County, Skerratt said. At 5:49 a.m., Taylor was driving the 1999 Super Duty Ford F-250 southward when the single-vehicle accident occurred, Skerratt said. He said the helicopter transported Taylor to UF Health in Jacksonville, Fla. His condition was not immediately available from hospital officials there. Skerratt said that Georgia State Patrol Trooper Chris Williams is the primary investigator of the accident and that assisting Williams was Ware Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Aldridge with the case.
