Alpharetta Crash Sends Man, Woman, and Child to the Hospital
Posted on Jul 26, 2011
On Friday, July 15, 2011, a Georgia crash occurred in which Alpharetta police suspect the driver was impaired and driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
Authorities indicated that they received many phone calls around 1:25 PM Friday afternoon reporting a serious wreck on GA 400, north of Old Milton Parkway. It appeared that a green Ford Ranger pickup truck was traveling north on GA 400 between Old Milton Parkway and Windward Parkway when its left tire blew. After the tire blew, the car lost control and struck the median, crossing into other lanes of traffic. It collided with a van before sideswiping a streetlight pole and rolling over.
During the impact, the driver was ejected from the car. Police have not released the driver's name, but it has been confirmed that a male was driving the car and traveling with a female passenger and child. The male driver and female passenger were injured; however, the child appeared uninjured. All three were transported to North Fulton Hospital for medical care.
The Alpharetta Public Safety Department indicated that DUI charges are pending in this crash regarding DUI, possession of marijuana, and child endangerment. However, the accident investigation is still ongoing at this time.
There was no word whether the driver of the van that collided with the pickup truck was injured.
We would like to wish all involved in this Alpharetta accident a full recovery, and we would like to remind Georgia motorists to never get behind the wheel of a vehicle impaired.
