January 16, 2019

FORSYTH COUNTY, GA. – As reported online by forsythnews.com, a woman was killed in a vehicle crash in Forsyth County, Georgia. This was the first fatal vehicle accident to take place in Forsyth County in 2019. It appears a vehicle attempting to make a left turn drove into the path of another vehicle, killing one woman and injuring two other people.*

27-year-old Jordan Banasiak, of Cumming, Georgia, was driving a Chevrolet sedan eastbound on Highway 20 in Forsyth County. Banasiak tried to turn left from Highway 20 onto the northbound ramp to Ga. 400, and a Honda minivan struck her vehicle. The minivan had been traveling westbound on Highway 20, and it would appear Banasiak turned into its path. This information has not been confirmed.

Upon impact, Banasiak’s Chevy sedan rolled and came to a rest with Banasiak trapped inside. Authorities reported that firefighters had to extricate Banasiak from her vehicle, and she was critically injured. Emergency responders transported her to North Fulton Hospital, where she died from her injuries on January 3. 

The driver of the minivan, who was not identified, sustained minor injuries. It does not appear the driver required treatment beyond the scene. A passenger in the minivan, who was also not identified, was seriously injured and transported to North Fulton Hospital for treatment. The passenger’s current condition is not known. 

The accident caused all westbound lanes of Highway 20 to close for about an hour as crews investigated and cleared the wreckage. The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the crash and has not yet reported further information.
