Forsyth County News

Details in the second of two wrecks that occurred about the same time Monday afternoon have been released.

According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, a 67-year-old Jasper man was flown from the scene of a three-vehicle collision in west Forsyth to Atlanta Medical Center with serious injuries.

The sheriff’s office said both Dewey Wyatt and a passenger in his vehicle, Kayla Summers, also of Jasper, were listed in stable condition Wednesday at the hospital. Summers had been taken there by ambulance.

According to sheriff’s reports, the wreck occurred about 3:30 p.m. on Bethelview Road near Hwy. 20.

Wyatt, who was traveling north in a 1994 Chevrolet S10, had stopped for traffic when he was rear-ended by a vehicle driven by 33-year-old Shaun Kuhn of Cumming.

Kuhn’s vehicle then traveled into the southbound lane of Bethelview, striking a 1987 Chevrolet Caprice driven by Justin Westmoreland, 22, of Cumming.

All drivers and passengers were wearing their seatbelts, according to the sheriff’s office. Kuhn has been charged with failure to maintain lane and following too close, with additional charges possible.

About the same time as the Bethelview incident, authorities were handling a two-vehicle wreck involving a dump truck in north Forsyth.

That collision, which occurred at Chattahoochee and Shady Grove roads, claimed the life of 53-year-old Forsyth County resident Jeffrey Noda.

Noda died at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta of injuries suffered in the wreck. He was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado that had turned left in front of a county-owned dump truck.

No charges are forthcoming, according to the sheriff’s office.
