Dawsonville, GA – Two-Vehicle Crash at GA-53 & Jack Heard Rd Intersection
Dawsonville, GA (August 3, 2022) – Around 8 p.m. on the night of Thursday, July 28, a two-vehicle accident took place at an intersection in Dawsonville.
According to Georgia State Patrol officials, the accident happened at the intersection of GA-53 and Jack Heard Road. Police confirmed that a Mercedes Benz was traveling west and approaching the intersection. A Ford F-150 was traveling south and approaching the intersection when the driver drove through a stop sign without stopping. The pickup truck slammed into the Mercedes, causing the Mercedes to travel off the side of the road and collide with a power pole.
Paramedics, fire crews, and several other local responders were called to the scene to help those in need. The driver of the pickup truck, as well as his passenger, were lying on the road after the accident but were able to crawl to a ditch on the side of the road. The two parties and the driver of the Mercedes were injured and rushed to local hospitals for treatment.
The roadway was blocked in several lanes until police were able to clear the scene. This led to delays for some time.
No further details have been released but the investigation continues.
Our thoughts are with the parties injured in this accident. We hope that they will fully recover as quickly as possible.
