In happened around 4:00 p.m. on Hendrix Road, just off Highway 369.

Two children in the pickup were treated at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite and have been released. Their mother, Brandi Densmore, 30, of Cumming, was not injured in the crash. A passenger in the truck, Allyson Jameson, 18, was taken to North Fulton Hospital with minor injuries.
