MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Louis Wright is the man who died in a fatal five-car wreck in Macon Thursday morning.

Georgia State Patrol Troopers said the 63-year-old from Warner Robins caused the crash.

The accident happened at the intersection of Broadway and Flamingo Drive.

Cpl. Michael Burns explained Wright was traveling north on Broadway when the car ran off the road hitting the curb, a mailbox and a trashcan. Wright’s car then reentered the road, hitting another car heading north on Broadway. That crash caused Wright’s car to go into the southbound lane hitting a truck. The truck then hit a tractor trailer, according to Burns.

The Bibb County Sheriff’s Office asked GSP to handle the investigation.
