Seven people were injured though only one was taken to the hospital following a two-car wreck that caused one car to overturn on Buford Highway (Hwy. 20) at its intersection with Ga. 400 Sunday evening.

According to an accident report, a 27-year-old north Forsyth woman who had one passenger in her car was driving a 2015 white Hyundai Sonata east on Buford Highway shortly before 9 p.m. Sunday when she attempted to make a left turn onto the Ga. 400 northbound on-ramp.

A 15-year-old male from Cumming, who had four passengers in his 2002 Acura MDX, was traveling west on the road and could not stop in time to avoid striking the Sonata, which flipped on impact.

The driver of the Sonata told deputies she thought the male in the MDX was turning right onto the on-ramp, and her passenger said he believed the left-turn arrow was green, though the woman was ultimately found at-fault for the crash and cited for failure to yield when turning left, the report said.

She was transported to North Fulton Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The six others involved were examined by EMS, though none were transported.
