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.
