A 46-year-old Forsyth County man suffered non-life threatening injuries Tuesday morning after his pickup truck flipped and ejected him on Ga. 400 in south Forsyth.
Around 6:06 a.m. July 11, an off-duty deputy was driving south on Ga. 400 just south of Exit 13/Peachtree Parkway when he came across the crash, according to Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, who was driving a 2002 GMC pickup truck, was ejected from the vehicle at some point during the rollover.
“The truck was in the left lane on [Ga. 400] and as he’s continuing south of the [Hwy.] 141 on-ramp, he notices a dark-colored car coming his way that wasn’t paying attention as it was merging,” Rainwater said. “[The man] moves over a little in his lane to avoid a crash, and at that point his two left tires went into the gravel/construction area on the side of the road.
“He then over-corrects, and as he’s crossing lanes, his truck flips and it ended up in the wood line up against trees on the [right] side of the road.”
It was not immediately known whether the man was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Rainwater said he will not face any charges.
He was transported to North Fulton Medical Center by ambulance.
Rainwater said the car that was trying to merge into the left lane did not stop.
