COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A LaGrange woman has died after being involved in an apparent hit-and-run car accident in Columbus Wednesday night and one person has been arrested.

Police arrested 28-year-old Courdia Bellamy of Columbus in connection with the accident that involved 7 people in 5 cars.

Bellamy is charged with fleeing or attempting to elude police, reckless driving, vehicular homicide, possession of drugs, and violation of probation.

Muscogee County Chief Deputy Coroner, Freeman Worley, confirmed that 42-year-old Jennifer Sisk died after being involved in the collision, which took place just before 8:00 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of Talbotton Road and Veterans Parkway. 

Fisk was later pronounced dead at Midtown Medical Center.

According to family members, Sisk, a nurse out of LaGrange, was heading home from a Columbus meeting when the crash happened.

Kelly Carr, Brother-in-law of Sisk remembers Jennifer just a day after the accident.

"She was a very strong independent person, she was very driven, motivated, it's a sad situation for everybody. You don't ever really know what you have until you lose it, and she will be dearly missed," said Carr.

Sisk is originally from Dublin, Georgia, but is a resident of LaGrange, where she, her husband, and two sons live.

"Jenny had a passion for health care. She was very passionate about patient care and nursing field. It was a spur of the moment thing that we had no warning about, so the family is just trying to deal with it," said Carr.

No word on if anyone else will be arrested in connection with this accident.

Bellamy is currently being held in the Muscogee County Jail.

He is set to appear before a judge for first Recorders Court hearing, Friday at 2 p.m.
