Two hurt when Jeep, SUV collide in west Forsyth

WEST FORSYTH — Two drivers were injured, one seriously, just before rush hour Monday morning when their vehicles collided in west Forsyth.

A Jeep Wrangler was reportedly heading east on Canton Hwy. (Hwy. 20) about 6 a.m. Monday when it was struck by a westbound GMC Yukon as it turned left from the highway onto Bethelview Road, according to Epifanio Rodriguez, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.

The Jeep’s driver, a 22-year-old Ball Ground man, was taken to an area hospital with serious injuries, though they were not thought to be life threatening, Rodriguez said.

The driver of the SUV, a 32-year-old man, was taken to a hospital by a friend and was later released with minor injuries.

Neither vehicle had any passengers, Rodriguez said.

Drugs and/or alcohol are not thought to be involved in the incident. As of Tuesday, no charges had been filed.

Traffic slowed as the incident was cleared, but no roads were closed.
