Nine transported following head-on wreck on Highway 129

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - A head-on crash closed Highway 129 at Oxford Road for more than an hour Saturday afternoon.

Lt. Beverly Walker with Hall County Fire and EMS says units responded just after 2:30 p.m. to a head-on vehicle crash involving three vehicles at Highway 129 North (Cleveland Highway) and Oxford Road. One of those vehicles overturned.

A total of nine patients, including six adults and three children, were transported by Hall County Fire Services. All suffered mild to moderate injuries.

Walker says responding units said it appeared everyone was wearing their seatbelts, which likely contributed to the lack of serious injury.

The road was closed for a short while and traffic was diverted down Oxford Road.

The crash is being investigated by the Georgia State Patrol.
