The Monday morning news was remarkably sad yesterday. The AJC reported on several motor vehicle wrecks that were nearly simultaneous. First, a fatal crash resulting in the deaths of two people in Lawrenceville and only a short way down the road another vehicle crash on Georgia 316. That first crash involved a head on collision involving two cars. In that collision, one driver was traveling in a car northbound and the other was driving southbound on Buford Road. Both drivers were killed in this accident and our hearts go out to their loved ones and their communities. Although other vehicles were involved in this crash, the drivers of those vehicles were not seriously injured.
Then, just down the road, another vehicle crash occurred. This crash involved a truck and a car. Specifically, a garbage truck and a passenger car ended up colliding with serious injuries apparently being sustained by one or both of the drivers involved. Although details were not forthcoming, the emergency authorities had to extricate one of the victims from the vehicle in which he or she was driving.
