GEORGIA – According to an online news story reported at wgauradio.com, the Georgia State Patrol is investigating two fatal crashes that occurred in the finals days of January in Northeast Georgia. One was a head-on collision that resulted in one fatality, and the other was a three-vehicle collision that also resulted in one fatality.* 

One of the accidents happened on Dicks Hill Parkway, near Toccoa, Georgia, in Stephens County. A vehicle traveling on the roadway crossed over the centerline for unknown reasons and crashed head-on into a vehicle traveling in the opposite direction. Descriptions of the vehicles were not reported. 

The driver of the vehicle that was struck was critically injured in the wreck and sadly died at the scene. She has been identified as 59-year-old Connie Evans, of Toccoa. The driver of the other vehicle sustained serious injuries, and emergency crews took him to Northeast Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville for treatment. He has been identified as a 28-year-old man from Toccoa. Troopers said he will likely face criminal charges for the collision. 

The other accident happened on the evening of January 30 on Gaines Mill Road in Hall County, Georgia. Georgia State Patrol says three vehicles somehow collided on the roadway. The vehicle makes and models were not reported, and the cause of the crash is not known. 

One person died in the three-vehicle crash, and officials have identified him as 32-year-old Austin Tatum, of Gainesville. No one else involved in the crash has been identified, and it is not clear if anyone else was injured.
