Jacksonville woman killed near Folkston when car hits logs extending from trailer

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A Jacksonville woman was killed Tuesday night when her car struck logs extending from the rear of a trailer that had turned in front of her north of Folkston, the Georgia State Patrol said.

Steven Andrew Hahn, 50, of Folkston was driving a 2006 Peterbilt that was pulling a trailer loaded with logs north on U.S. 1 about 7:30 p.m., the state patrol said.

Hahn turned left across the southbound lanes onto Crews Community Road when a 2016 Toyota Corolla struck the ends of the logs that were extending from the rear of the trailer, the state patrol said.

The driver of the Toyota, 57-year-old Linda Rybeck of Jacksonville, was killed while Hahn was uninjured, the state patrol said.

The intersection of Crews Community Road and U.S. 1 is five miles north of Folkston and is known as Maddox Crossing.

The accident remains under investigation, the state patrol said.
