Two taken to hospital after three-vehicle wreck

by Wes Mayer

A vehicle ended up on its side after being involved in a three-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon.

The accident happened around 3:58 p.m. when the driver of a 1994 Ford Explorer was traveling northbound on U.S. Highway 29 and attempted to make a left turn onto Kelley Farm Road, Georgia State Patrol Corporal Katie Thompson said. The Explorer turned in front of a 2006 Toyota Corolla traveling southbound, and the Corolla struck the Explorer on the passenger’s side.

The force of the collision caused the Explorer to overturn on the driver’s side and run into a 2003 Dodge Ram stopped at the stop sign on Kelley Farm Road. The driver of the Corolla was transported to Piedmont Newnan Hospital after suffering from a possible head injury and being cut multiple times from broken glass, Thompson said.

The 4-year-old son of the driver of the Explorer was also transported to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, although his injuries were unclear, Thompson said. According to Thompson, the child was strapped in a booster seat and may have been taken to the hospital as a precaution.

No others involved in the accident were injured, but the driver of the Explorer, Tiffany Faulkner, has charges pending for failure to yield, Thompson said.
