Initial story

Georgia State Patrol Trooper First Class Cal Barton said a head on collision on Bold Springs Road between Highway 81 and Loth Wages Road on Friday night seriously injured two men, including an 82-year-old man.

“A Hyundai Sonata, driven by an 82-year-old man, was traveling east on Bold Springs Road towards Highway 81 from Gwinnett County and a Ford Expedition, driven by a 30-year-old man, was traveling in the opposite direction, westbound, towards Highway 81,” Barton said. “The Hyundai ran off the right side of the road, overcorrects and travels into the oncoming traffic and strikes the Ford Expedition head on.”

Barton said the 82-year-old man was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center by ambulance and the other driver was taken to Clearview Regional Medical Center. He said charges are pending. Names of the drivers, however, are not being released at this time.
