UPDATE: Teen in west Bibb accident dies

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday on a teenager who died in a rollover car accident on Zebulon Road.

Bibb County Coroner Leon Jones said Abigail Hinson, 17, was pronounced dead at the hospital Thursday afternoon.

The accident occurred just before midnight Wednesday near Plantation Court Drive in west Bibb County, west of I-475.

The sheriff's department says Grant Hoffman, 18, lost control of his car, crossed over the road and struck several trees.

Hoffman is in stable condition at a local hospital. Mercer University spokesman Andrew Stabell said he is the son of head basketball Coach Bob Hoffman,

District Attorney David Cooke said he has requested an autopsy of Hinson.

Cooke said, "You just want to make sure you have the best available evidence in a case like this," but decline to comment further.

Cooke and Lt. Sean DeFoe both said the case remains under investigation and they declined to comment on what may have caused the wreck.

An accident reconstruction team returned to the scene Friday morning, according to DeFoe.

Anyone with information on the case can call the Bibb County Sheriff's Office at 478-751-7500.
