Baldwin, GA (November 14, 2022) – Several people sustained injuries in a car accident that took place at a Baldwin intersection on Sunday evening, November 13. 

According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened around 5 p.m. at the intersection of GA-365 and GA-384. Police confirmed that two vehicles were traveling in the area when the driver of a Toyota Corolla, identified as 45-year-old Kristina Brubaker, made a left turn after failing to yield. Her vehicle collided with a Chevrolet Malibu driven by 67-year-old Marguarite Gerrin. 

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other Baldwin responders were called to the scene to help those in need. Several parties sustained injuries as a result of the accident. Gerrin, Brubaker, and two passengers in Gerrin’s vehicle were transported to the hospital for treatment. The passengers who were injured have since been identified as 75-year-old James Gerrin and 32-year-old Elizabeth Hibbs. 

The roadway was blocked in the area of the accident for some time. Brubaker has since been charged with failing to yield. 

The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues. Police will update with more information as it becomes available. 

Our thoughts are with the injured parties with hopes of a speedy recovery.
