Four hospitalized after crash on Ga. 400
4 injured in wreck

Four People were taken to North Fulton Hospital following a crash on Ga. 400 at Martin Road Monday afternoon.  

They were injured when a Honda minivan struck a pickup truck broadside at the intersection just after 2 p.m. on Monday. 

Division Chief Jason Shivers, with the Forsyth County Fire Department, said that one of those taken to the hospital, an adult female, had critical traumatic injuries and that the other three victims, while injured, were in stable condition when they were transported.

A total of seven people were in the van, and all were members of the same family, heading back to Alabama after a vacation.  The driver of the van was uninjured, and the driver of the pickup truck declined treatment.  

Shivers said all of the victims that were hospitalized were adults, but that there were children in the van as well.  "Because these car seats could not be reused, the fire department is bringing replacement seats so the children can safely leave the scene."  

The group is not from the area and has no family here, so Shivers said officials were working on being sure the family was reunited as soon as possible. "Whether it's at the hospital, or a fire station, or sheriff's precinct, we want to be sure the family stays together," he said.  

The Georgia State Patrol is investigating the crash, which left Ga. 400 northbound closed for well over an hour as four ambulances, three engine companies, and a heavy rescue truck helped the injured.
