Clayton, GA (January 16, 2023) – At 2:20 p.m. on the afternoon of Sunday, January 15, a car accident with injuries took place at an intersection in Clayton.
According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened at the intersection of GA-15 and Ramey Boulevard Parkway. Police confirmed that 63-year-old John Vandergrift was driving his Tesla in the area and attempted to cross the intersection. His vehicle was struck by a Nissan Sentra that was driven by 32-year-old Janet Adams. After the collision, the Tesla then struck a Nissan Quest around the area of a local grocery store.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders in Clayton were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. Adams, as well as two passengers in Vandergrift’s Tesla, sustained serious injuries as a result of the accident. The two passengers, identified as 58-year-old Lori Otto and 58-year-old Nicole Hughes, were rushed to local hospitals for treatment. Vandergrift also sustained injuries but is expected to fully recover. The driver of the Quest was also injured but not hospitalized. She has since been identified as 56-year-old Elizabeth Knott.
The roadway was blocked in several lanes of traffic following the accident. Police have since charged Vandergrift with failing to yield due to his role in the accident.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues.
