FAYETTEVILLE, Ga. — Authorities say one person died on Friday afternoon following an accident in Fayetteville involving a semi-truck.

Fayetteville Police spokesperson Ann Marie Burdett said that police were called to the area of Highway 85 South between the Publix and Kroger grocery stores and just north of Highway 92. There, they said a semi-truck had been involved in an accident with a pickup truck. 

While many details are still under investigation, police said one person has died in the crash and another is reportedly in critical condition. 

On Tuesday, officers identified the man as 69-year-old Robert Ernest Chancellor. His wife was the passenger in the pickup truck, and she was initially listed in critical condition. Her injuries have since been determined to be non-life threatening. 

Police said they are actively investigating the incident and no charges have been filed.
