Five individuals suffered injuries in a multi-vehicle crash on GA 365 in Hall County. The accident took place at around 3 p.m. on Friday, October 1.

According to the details shared by the Georgia State Patrol, the Hall County wreck was a result of a chain-reaction accident. The crash began when traffic slowed down in the northbound lanes of GA 365 due to traffic congestion up ahead.

The driver of a Dodge Ram pickup truck failed to slow down in time for the slow traffic. This led the truck to crash into the rear of a Ford F150 traveling right in front of it. 

The collision pushed the Ford into the vehicle in its front and caused a chain reaction. In all, five vehicles became embroiled in the accident, including three pickups and an SUV. Two vehicles became disabled in the middle of the highway’s northbound lanes. The other three stopped in the median after the collision. This closed the roadway to the rest of the vehicles on the road, causing a temporary shutdown.

The drivers of all the five vehicles involved in the wreck suffered injuries. The driver of the Dodge Ram that initiated the accident was identified as Jonathan Kent, 60, of Lookout Mountain. The Ford driver was Amber Orr, 43, of Cornelia. One of the five automobiles that suffered damage in the incident was an Acura MDX. John Lee, 51, of Semmes, Alabama, was driving the Acura.

In addition to the drivers, three passengers traveling in the Acura also complained of injuries. They were taken to the Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. GSP continues to investigate the multi-vehicle crash on GA 365.

In Carrollton crashes like these, the injured victims can seek compensation from an at-fault driver with the aid of a Georgia car accident lawyer.
