Authorities say the driver of the other vehicle was at fault and distracted while talking on a cell phone at the time of wreck.
Erlanger Medical Centers Life Force helicopter was dispatched, but Charles Derryberry, driving a red 1993 Chevy Silverado pickup truck, was dead at the scene, according to authorities.
The wreck occurred about 2:30 p.m.
First responders transported LaFayette resident Cassandra Leanne Wallin, the 20-year-old driver of a 1998 Chevy S-10 pickup, to a local hospital.
Georgia State Patrol Tfc. Anthony Hulsey said the woman was talking on her cell phone while traveling south when she swerved off the road.
Hulsey said Wallin then overcorrected and hit the driver of the Silverado traveling north head-on. Her pickup truck landed upside down in a ditch.
The state patrol said charges are pending against Wallin and an accident reconstruction team is determining speed and any other factors involved in the wreck.
Linda Graham, who lives about a half-mile from the wreck site, said this is a dangerous stretch of highway.
If they dont slow down a lot more people will get killed, she said.
Hulsey said neither driver was wearing a seatbelt.
