February 5--  An Eastman man was killed early Saturday in a one-car wreck in Montgomery County.

Montgomery County Sheriff Doug Maybin says officials believe 45-year-old Daniel Kersey may have fallen asleep at the wheel when his vehicle crashed about 3 a.m. Saturday on Highway 280 near the Calvary Grace Baptist Church on the eastern side of Ailey.  He was a Vidalia native and lived most of his life in Lyons before moving to Eastman about nine years ago.

Sheriff Maybin also reports authorities are investigating a shooting over a $10 dollar bet on the Superbowl.  He says one man was shot in the knee after the game and the shooter fled the scene.  Mount Vernon police are investigating.
