A 67-year-old Senoia woman was airlifted to an Atlanta area hospital in critical condition after a Wednesday wreck on Georgia Highway 16.

A 67-year-old Senoia woman remained in critical condition Thursday after a wreck in which her vehicle was struck by a tractor-trailer truck, according to Senoia Police Department officials.

Lynda Adcock was extricated from her vehicle by Coweta County Fire Department rescue personnel and then air-flighted by helicopter ambulance to Atlanta Medical Center where she was in critical condition Thursday morning, said Senoia Police Major Steve Tomlin.

The accident occurred about 5:10 p.m. Wednesday on Georgia Highway 16 near Harper Road in Senoia, the major said. 

“The preliminary investigation by Senoia Police indicate that (Adcock’s) Chevy Cobalt made a left turn from the westbound right lane of Hwy. 16 across the path of the tractor-trailer truck which was traveling west in the left westbound passing lane,” Tomlin said in a statement.

The driver of the semi was identified as Jeffrey Williams, 50, of Smyrna, Ga.

No charges have been filed and the investigation is ongoing, the major said.

Nine rescuers with the Coweta County Fire Department responded to the accident, according to Assistant Chief Jeff Denney. 

“Upon arrival, crews discovered one female patient trapped in the passenger vehicle,” he said.

“Tools were deployed and it took crews approximately 15 minutes to free her from the vehicle.”
