A head-on crash south of Moreland critically injured three people on Wednesday. The accident occurred on United States Highway 27 Alternate after the driver of a northbound Buick LeSabre reportedly crossed into oncoming traffic in an effort to avoid colliding with a vehicle exiting a driveway. The LeSabre, which was carrying only the driver, then struck a southbound Toyota Corolla carrying two people. Although the LeSabre remained on the roadway, the Corolla landed in a nearby ditch.
According to the Assistant Fire Chief for the Coweta County Fire Department, Mitch Coggin, all three individuals had to be extracted from their vehicles by rescue crews. It took approximately 30 minutes to get everyone out of their respective cars. Two of the critically injured parties were taken by helicopter to Grady Hospital and one was taken to Atlanta Medical Center for treatment. Following the accident, both directions of traffic were left at a standstill.
