Four hospitalized after collision

Authorities: Vehicle ran stop sign, struck SUV

POSTED: January 22, 2013 3:07 p.m.

Four people remain hospitalized following a two-vehicle collision Sunday night in southwest Forsyth.

According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, the head-on wreck occurred about 9 p.m. on Bethelview Road at Hanover Lane.

Sheriff’s Investigator Ron Tomblin said Jocelyn Afari, 50, of Cumming failed to stop the 2007 Mercury Grand Marquise she was driving at a stop sign.

According to Tomblin, the Marquise was traveling too fast to make the turn north onto Bethelview without crossing into its southbound lane, where it struck a 2010 Toyota Rav 4.

The Toyota’s driver, a 69-year-old Roswell woman, and two female passengers in their 50s were taken to Northside Hospital-Forsyth. As of Tuesday afternoon, all three were in stable condition.

Afari, who was traveling alone, was taken to North Fulton Hospital, where she also was listed as stable.

No charges have been filed and the wreck remains under investigation. Tomblin did note, however, that alcohol and drugs do not appear to be contributing factors.
