Three people suffered minor injuries, one of whom was transported to Northeast Georgia Medical Center, after a wreck on Bettis Tribble Gap Road caused one vehicle to spin off the road and land down a 40-foot embankment on Saturday.
The female driver who was transported, a 29-year-old from Cumming, is pregnant and expected to be OK, according to an accident report.
She had one passenger in her 2015 Dodge Durango who was transported to Northeast Georgia by her husband after complaining of soreness.
That woman is also expected to be fine.
The other driver, a 35-year-old Dawsonville man, was not transported, though he suffered some lacerations to his face and was checked out by Central EMS personnel.
Around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, July 5, the male was driving north on Bettis Tribble Gap Road near Heatherwyn Way when his front passenger wheel left the roadway as he attempted to negotiate a curve, the report said.
He “jerked the steering wheel to the left to correct, causing him to lose control of his vehicle and skid to the left into the opposite lane,” the report said. “[The Durango] was approaching from the north, and [she] attempted to avoid being struck by [the man’s vehicle]. The vehicles collided in the southbound lane, causing extensive damage to both vehicles.’
According to the report, the man reportedly said he was driving too fast and lost control of his vehicle.
He was charged with too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane.
