A 75-year-old Georgia man is being charged in an accident that happened on Sept. 11 around 8 p.m. According to police, the man was driving a Buick LeSabre along Long Branch Road in northeast Georgia when he crossed the center line and crashed into a Volkswagen Jetta.
The Jetta was hit head-on, and its 19-year-old driver was later flown to Atlanta Medical Center for his injuries. The two passengers were taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center while the Buick driver was taken to Gainesville for treatment. All of the individuals were described as having injuries that were not life-threatening. Of the four, only one, a 20-year-old passenger in the Jetta, was wearing a seat belt. Authorities say they plan to charge the Buick driver with seat belt violation, DUI, two counts of felony serious injury by vehicle, driving on the wrong side of the roadway and failure to maintain a lane.
