Accident Takes Life of High School Student

Just days before Valentine’s Day, a homecoming queen was killed in a vehicle accident in Dawson County. The high school senior was driving when her vehicle collided with a semi truck just a mile from where she attended school. The young woman from Dawsonville was only 18 years old.

According to the Georgia State Patrol, the young woman was driving west on Ga. 53 in a 2002 Honda CRV. A semi truck was heading east at the same time. The young woman approached a curve in the highway and “failed to negotiate” it appropriately, losing control of her SUV. She veered into the eastbound lane and into the path of the semi truck.

The impact of the collision forced the SUV off the road and down an embankment. The driver of the semi truck was not injured, but pictures taken at the scene show the cab of the truck crumpled to the front wheels and its front bumper laying on the pavement. Photos also show that the roads were covered with rain at the time of the accident.
