Early this morning, Representative Barry Loudermilk (GA-11) and his wife, Desiree, were involved in a car accident on I-40 near Knoxville, TN. According to a press release from his office, the Loudermilks were rear-ended, causing their vehicle to leave the interstate, flipping several times.
Both suffered non-life-threatening injuries and have been advised to seek follow-up medical treatment.
The Loudermilks had been in Georgia to assist with Irma preparations and were headed back to DC when the accident occurred. However, they will now return to Georgia instead.
In the press release, the couple acknowledged God’s hand in their safety, and ask for thoughts and prayers. They certainly have that, along with well wishes for a speedy recovery, from all of us at GeorgiaPol.com.
