Two Die in Separate Berrien County Crashes

car accident settlement

Within just a few hours on Monday, October 12, two people were killed in separate Berrien County crashes.

Around 4 p.m., 17-year-old Nashville resident Keagan Kung-Korte lost his life in a single-car accident. A Georgia State Patrol report said Kung-Korte was driving a Hyundai Sonata along Valdosta Road when his vehicle left the roadway. He crashed into a mailbox and continued going until he struck a tree and fence. The vehicle subsequently spun and came to rest in a ditch.

Kung-Korte was a senior at Berrien High School and he was also enrolled at Valdosta State University which he was attending for the second consecutive year. He was a member of the university’s swim team.

This accident occurred about two miles away from Kung-Korte’s home. The cause of the crash is still under investigation.  

About two hours later, another single-car crash occurred around ten minutes away. This crash resulted in the death of Lakisha King, a resident of Moultrie.

She was driving along State Route 37 and lost control of her vehicle when she attempted to go around a bend. King went off the road and struck an embankment. The vehicle overturned and King was ejected in the process.

The 35-year-old died at the scene.  The GSP said King was wearing a seatbelt and she was the only person in the vehicle.

Berrien County Sheriff Ray Paulk said most accidents in the area were due to speed. He urged everyone to buckle up, slow down, put down their cellphones, and pay attention to the road.
