THOMSON, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- The McDuffie County Coroner's office confirms a 16-year-old has been killed in a two-car accident Saturday morning.

Deputy Coroner Paul Johnson says Amarione Thampson was traveling east on White Oak Road around 10:42a.m. He ran off the shoulder of the road and over-corrected. That's when Deputy Coroner Johnson says he veered into oncoming traffic and was t-boned by a Dodge SUV.

Thampson was pronounced dead at University Hospital-McDuffie at 11:25a.m.

The driver of the Dodge was taken to Doctor's Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

This is the third death of a Thomson High School student in the past few months, all from motor vehicle accidents. Two students from Thomson Middle School have also been killed in recent car crashes.
