Posted on Dec 02, 2010
The Georgia State Patrol’s investigation has concluded that alcohol was a factor in a serious two car crash on November 15, 2010. The accident happened on Georgia Highway 16 East near the Orchard Hills Golf Course and sent three people to the hospital.
Police report that an eastbound Honda Civic went around the curve too fast and ended up in the westbound lane of traffic. The car drifted sideways and was effectively T-boned by a Ford Expedition. The Civic was torn in half in the accident.
Everyone involved in the accident, including both people in the Civic and the driver of the Expedition, were taken by ambulance to Atlanta hospitals. Air ambulances were unable to operate because of the weather at the time of the accident. Both occupants of the Civic were reported to be in critical condition at Atlanta Medical Center following the crash. The driver of the Expedition was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital.
The identities of those involved in this crash have not yet been released. Police have indicated that the driver of the Civic will be charged with driving under the influence and driving too fast for conditions.
We extend our best wishes for the complete and quick recovery of everyone involved in this Georgia drunk driving accident.
