The Georgia State Patrol says that a collision involving two vehicles on a portion of W. Highway 16 may be attributed to speed. The accident occurred early in the morning on September 22. Two people were flown by helicopter to Atlanta Medical Center due to injuries sustained in the crash.
According to reports, a Toyota Corolla was traveling eastbound at approximately 8:00 a.m. when it struck a Nissan Altima that was trying to get onto the highway. The collision with the Nissan caused the Toyota to go off the road and into the woods.
The driver of the Nissan had non-life threatening injuries and was transported to a local hospital by ambulance. The two people in the Toyota were transported by air to Atlanta Medical Center. Their conditions were unknown.
Witnesses told authorities that the Toyota had been driving in a reckless manner just moments before the crash. People said that the driver of the Toyota was traveling at high speeds and darting in and out of traffic. The accident caused the highway to be closed for about an hour while officials conducted their investigation.
