Man dies from injuries suffered in Aug. 2 car crash

By B.J. Williams News Director
BALDWIN - A Baldwin man injured in a single-car crash just over a week ago has died from injuries sustained in the accident.

Authorities said 32-year-old Michael Justin Cape died on Saturday, eight days after the August 2 crash on Highway 198 in Banks County.

At the time of the accident, the Georgia State Patrol said Cape lost control of his vehicle just after 7:30 p.m. August 2 near Hill Road, traveled down an embankment and struck a tree on the driver's side.

No one else was in the vehicle.

The Georgia State Patrol said Cape had been cited for driving under the influence.
