MACON COUNTY, GA. – One person died after an accident with an ATV and dirt bike on Spring Street, according to the Montezuma Police Department.

According to a Facebook post by Montezuma Police, 47-year-old Eric Levontae Felton of Montezuma was pronounced dead at the scene Sunday afternoon by Macon County Coroner Brenda Oglesby.
