Georgia: A deadly motor vehicle accident claimed the life of a woman from Cordele
What happened to Brittany Atkins?
The authorities responded to a scene of an accident in Clay County, Georgia. According to the reports, Brittany and her partner Colton Leach were driving home from a Jelly Roll concert. They were celebrating a milestone of one year of sobriety. When fate twisted, Brittany was driving the vehicle, and they met with a tragic accident that claimed Brittany’s life. Colton was ejected from the vehicle and sustained injuries.
The two had a son in 2017 named Colton Rhett Leach, fondly called C-Rex. The two also co-owned a business, Black Creek Towing & Off-road Recovery.
Brittany’s tragic, untimely death has left loved ones in deep mourning. Her heartbroken partner, Colton Leach, took to social media and shared that he would not be taking any calls or messages. He appealed to everyone to give the family space, and if anyone needed to reach out to him, they could reach him through JJ Jones or Sherry Dawn. He requested everyone to pray for his son “who no longer has his mother, and I no longer have my best friend,” he wrote.
A GoFundMe page has been organized
Sherry Leach has organized a GoFundMe page. The goal is set at 10,000 dollars. Nearly three thousand dollars have been raised so far. The funds will go to Colton, Brittany’s partner, so he and his son can mourn her while remaining financially covered with the community’s help. According to the page, the couple had weathered through many hardships together. They were committed to each other. One year ago, Brittany made a life-changing decision and chose to devote her life to following Jesus. Her family has found comfort in knowing that she is with Him now.
