MT. AIRY - Two people were hurt in a three-vehicle wreck near Habersham Central High School Monday morning.<br /> <br /> The collision occurred just west of Owens Circle toward Cornelia around 11 a.m.<br /> <br /> Trooper 1st Class Jesse Lewis provided details of the wreck.<br /> <br /> A 2008 Ford Fusion driven by 16-year-old Dillon Caudell of Mt. Airy was traveling west on Camp Creek Road, Lewis said.<br /> <br /> A Lexus RX-300 driven by 63-year-old Anita Parker of Cornelia and a 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser driven by 68-year-old John Lipkin of Mt. Airy were traveling east on Camp Creek Road, both negotiating a curve, Lewis said.<br /> <br /> "Vehicle 1 [Caudell] crossed the centerline, sideswiping Vehicle 2 [Parker]," Lewis said. "Vehicle 1 then struck Vehicle 3 [Lipkin] head-on, causing Vehicle 1 to rotate counterclockwise, coming to a final rest in the center of Camp Creek Road."<br /> <br /> Lipkin's car also rotated counterclockwise, coming to rest off the south shoulder of Camp Creek Road, Lewis said. <br /> <br /> Both Caudell and Lipkin were trapped in their vehicles and had to be extricated by fire department personnel from Habersham County and Demorest Fire Department.<br /> <br /> Caudell, who suffered upper extremity injuries, was airlifted from the scene to Atlanta Medical Center, Lewis said.<br /> <br /> Lipkin, who suffered visible injuries, was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, Lewis said.<br /> <br /> Parker was not hurt, Lewis said.
