The serious vehicle accident that shut down Ga. 316 westbound between Ga. 53 and Jackson Trail Road on Friday night led to two fatalities.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, a Buick Enclave was traveling north on Ga. 316 when the driver failed to yield as they crossed Jackson Trail Road. The Buick hit a GMC Sierra that was traveling east on Ga. 316. This caused the Buick to rotate and hit a Chevy Tahoe that was traveling east in the inside lane. The GMC Sierra also struck a Dodge ram pick-up truck that was also traveling east on Ga. 316.
The Buick driver and a juvenile died as a result of their injuries, and two other juvenile passengers from the Buick were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the GMC Sierra was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Both the Chevy Tahoe driver and the Dodge ram pick-up driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The Dodge ram driver was treated for injuries and was released on the scene, while the Chevy Tahoe driver was transported to a regional medical center.
The GSP has not released the names or ages of those involved. The crash remains under investigation.
