Two men were injured during a crash Wednesday afternoon at the intersection of Lumpkin County Parkway and Ga. 400 northbound.

According to a report from the Georgia State Patrol, a 2002 Toyota Tundra driven by Gale Pickell, 62, of Cumming, was attempting to turn right onto Ga. 400 northbound from Lumpkin County Parkway. Pickell turned into the far left lane, the same one in which a 2007 Ford Expedition driven by Matthew Oliver, 33, of Dahlonega was traveling. 

The front of Oliver's vehicle struck the driver's side door of Pickell's vehicle. The vehicles collided in the far left lane of Ga. 400 around 4:36 p.m.

Both drivers were transported to a Northeast Georgia Health System hospital with visible injuries. Their conditions are unknown.

The crash shut down the northbound lane of Ga. 400 for roughly an hour, according to GSP.
