A Late-September car accident in Newnan resulted in the hospitalization of two people.
On the afternoon of September 24th at about 4:30 p.m., a Jeep Wrangler and a Nissan Titan were both heading south on Corinth Road near Millard Farmer Road.
The Wrangler began slowing down to turn, a move that the driver of the Nissan failed to notice.
The driver of the Titan rear-ended the Wrangler, shoving it onto the east shoulder. The Wrangler then struck two traffic signs and overturned.
The Titan did not emerge unscathed. It traveled to the east shoulder and struck a tree before bouncing backwards.
39-year-old Harry Davis, the driver of the Titan, had not been wearing a seatbelt. He suffered injury when he struck his head on the windshield of the vehicle. Fire and EMS workers helped him from the wreckage.
He was transported by ground to Atlanta Medical Center.
39-year-old Melinda Surfus was the driver of the Jeep Wrangler. She is from Fayetteville and was also taken to Atlanta Medical Center.
According to witnesses, Surfus was stable and speaking to first responders at the scene of the accident. Her condition after being transported was unknown.
Davis is facing charges of following too closely as well as distracted driving and failure to wear a seatbelt.
Authorities have ruled out alcohol as a factor in the accident. The accident still remains under investigation.
