Demorest, GA (November 1, 2022) – Around 12:45 p.m. on the afternoon of Sunday, October 30, three were injured in a car accident at a Demorest intersection. 

According to local officials, the accident happened at the intersection of GA-105 and Double Springs Road. Police confirmed that an adult female identified as Brooke Palmer was driving a Lexus and entering the intersection when she suddenly pulled into the path of a pickup truck. The two vehicles collided, causing the Lexus to overturn down an embankment. The pickup truck also ran down the hill afterward. Both vehicles sustained extensive damages. 

Several local responders were dispatched to the scene to assist those with injuries. Palmer, as well as the other driver, sustained injuries in the accident. The other driver was identified as 51-year-old Doug Elrod. There was also a child in Elrod’s truck, identified as a 2-year-old. The child was also injured but is expected to be okay. 

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

The investigation into the circumstances of the accident continues.
