Forsyth County News

Three people were hospitalized early Wednesday after a head-on collision in north Forsyth that authorities say was caused by a wrong-way driver.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Capt. Tim House said a Dawson County Sheriff’s deputy saw the two-vehicle collision, which occurred about 1 a.m. at Ga. 400 and Jot Em Down Road.

The deputy reported seeing a black 2011 Hyundai Elantra traveling south on Ga. 400 north.

"The Dawson County deputy attempted to catch up with the vehicle when it crashed head-on … with a silver-colored Hyundai Sonata," House said.

The driver of the Elantra, whose name was not available, was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta.

House said the vehicle had a North Carolina license plate.

The driver of the Sonata, a 50-year-old Dawsonville woman, and her 24-year-old female passenger were taken to North Fulton Hospital in Roswell.

No charges have been filed in the wreck, which remains under investigation.

House said neither drugs nor alcohol appear to have been factors in the collision.
