Frank Scott

Correctional Officer Frank Scott was killed in a prison bus crash while supervising an outside work detail of juvenile offenders from the Youth Correctional Institute in Hardwick.

Several inmates sabotaged the vehicle's brake lines by cutting the hydraulic hoses to the front and rear brakes. As a result, the bus crashed into an embankment and Officer Scott was ejected from the front doors.

Four inmates plead guilty to charges in connection with the incident and received longer jail sentences.

Officer Scott had served with the Georgia Department of Corrections for three years. The Frank Scott State Prison was named in honor of Officer Scott.
