Woman taken to local hospital with serious injuries after single-car accident on Jot Em Down Road

Update (March 16, 3:34 p.m.): Georgia State Patrol reported that a woman who crashed into a tree early this morning in Forsyth County was transported to a local hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening.

Georgia State Patrol Corporal Travis Sanders said that Lisa Newmyer, 55, of Cumming was driving up Ga. 400 in her Lexus when she veered off of the road for a currently unknown reason. She hit a tree near the intersection of Ga. 400 and Jot Em Down Road just south of the Dawson County line and was soon after found by an off-duty Forsyth County firefighter who called for help.

Authorities later helped free Newmyer from her car and transported her to a local hospital. She has since been cited with failure to maintain lane.
