Young man dies in four-wheeler accident

Robert ‘Bubba’ Gray

Robert “Bubba” Gray, 17, of Adel died after receiving injuries in a four-wheeler accident early Friday evening, March 15, 2024, on Antioch Road, according to local authorities.

Gray sustained the injuries after a truck collided with the four-wheeler he was driving.

According to Cook County Fire Chief Johnny West, “County Emergency Medical Responders were paged out to an accident on Antioch Road, where a Life Flight [emergency medical] helicopter was requested, and the Fire Department was needed to establish a landing zone. While units were responding, the helicopter and all additional responding units were cancelled.”

The Adel News has reached out to the County Coroner and Georgia State Patrol, Tifton Post, for more information about the fatal accident.

Amber Walker, Bubba Gray’s aunt, has organized a GoFundMe page for his parents, Thea and Mickey Gray. The funds will help with funeral expenses, food, flower arrangements, and more. As of early this week, the page had raised $489 of a $10,000 goal. Donation containers also have been set up at businesses in Adel to help with the final expenses, including Huddle House.

Bubba Gray was an employee of Adel Tire Co. Please see the complete obituary information here.
