Two Claxton youth dead in I-16 wreck


Two young Evans County residents - one of them a sophomore at Claxton High School - were killed in a deadly wreck on I-16 near Pooler around 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19.
Virgil Moody, 19-year-old Hagan resident, and Brittanie Altman, 16-year-old Claxton native, were traveling to Savannah with 39-year-old Wendy Melton of Reidsville, to visit Altman’s father - hospitalized at St. Joseph’s - when their car was involved in the fatal wreck with three tractor trailers and four vehicles.
The Altman family were members of Trinity Church of the Nazarene in Bellville. A relief fund has been set up through the church to assist with funeral expenses. Donations may be mailed to PO Box 521, Claxton, or delivered to James Bradley, senior pastor, at Womack and Co. on Hwy 280. Please note “Altman Fund” on the memo line.
Bradley says any funds above and beyond what is needed to cover funeral expenses will be used toward medical expenses for Bobby Altman, Brittanie’s father. Bobby has been a patient at St. Joseph’s in Savannah for a month battling serious medical problems.
