Ga. Paramedic, Firefighter Die in Collision

May 1—A paramedic and a firefighter died in a head-on crash in Eatonton early Monday morning.

Dwayne Adams, of Monroe, and Andrew Harris, of Eatonton, died at the scene of the wreck in the 700 block of U.S. 441 about 6 a.m., Putnam County Coroner Gary P. McElhenney said.

Adams, 51, was at the wheel of a passenger car, headed south to work as a paramedic at Heartland EMS in Dublin. Harris, a 58-year-old part-time firefighter who also works part time for a funeral home, was at the wheel of a hearse.

"One vehicle crossed the line and hit the other head-on," McElhenney said.

Neither car had passengers. Georgia State Patrol investigated the crash.
