NORTHWEST FORSYTH — One person was hospitalized and a second arrested following a single-vehicle wreck that occurred at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday on Heardsville Road in northwest Forsyth.

According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, 33-year-old Jason Duren of Cumming was traveling north on Heardsville in a Honda CRX when he crossed the centerline and lost control near Watson Road.

The Honda rolled over three times, knocking over a mailbox and fire hydrant before striking a tree.

The passenger, described by the sheriff’s office as a 23-year-old man from Cumming, was thrown from the vehicle.

Emergency personnel arrived to find the passenger lying on the ground, according to Forsyth County Fire Division Chief Jason Shivers. The injured man was taken by ambulance to North Fulton Hospital. The extent of his injuries could not immediately be determined.

The sheriff’s office said Duren, who was out walking around, was taken into custody after a rifle and suspected methamphetamine were found in the vehicle.

Speed was a factor in the incident, according to the sheriff’s office. As of Tuesday afternoon, Duren had been charged with reckless driving, though other charges are likely.

Because the impact had badly damaged a tree, Heardsville Road was closed for about two hours while county workers removed it.
