Major Accident in Forsyth County Sends Two to Hospital

One man and one woman were hospitalized after a two vehicle crash in northern Forsyth County Tuesday morning, Forsyth County News reports.

According to the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, the accident occurred at the intersection of Ga. 400 and Browns Bridge Road, just north of Cumming, at approximately 8 a.m. An unidentified man rear ended a SUV with his motorcycle, sustaining what has been reported as life-threatening injuries. He was taken to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville.

His medical condition is unknown at this time.

The driver of the SUV, an unnamed woman, was reportedly in pain when police arrived, though she had no immediately visible injuries. Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Epifanio Rodriguez confirmed that she was taken to a local hospital.

There were no passengers in either vehicle.

The cause of crash is still unknown, and police have yet to file any charges.

The accident left only one lane open on Ga. 400 southbound for about an hour while emergency personnel worked the scene. All lanes were then reopened.

This marks a troubling trend in the area, as it is the second time in a week that a motorcycle has been involved in a wreck on Browns Bridge Road. On April 19, a pickup truck struck a motorcycle on the same road, putting the driver of that motorcycle in the hospital. That man’s injuries were less severe.

Browns Bridge Road has a history of bad wrecks and dangerous driving. The road was widened in 2007 in hopes of alleviating such conditions, the Gainesville Times reported.

There has been no word as to whether or not officials are once again looking into the safety of Browns Bridge Road.
