When first responders arrived at the scene, they found two people dead in a white 2021 Cadillac XT4.

Mrs. Jackson was the driver, according to the initial investigation.


The Jacksons were traveling west on Flowery Branch Road and started to drift off the road at Shadow Lane, according to the sheriff’s office.

Alice Jackson tried to adjust but over-corrected, which caused the SUV to leave the roadway and overturn.

Deputies said the vehicle stopped at the top of an embankment.

Both Alice and Jimmy Jackson were pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
