Dade County, GA (June 8, 2019) – A local news source has confirmed a woman who was involved in a dangerous head-on collision that occurred in May is still in the hospital.
Based on the previous report from Georgia State Patrol, one woman involved had been driving down the wrong side of Interstate 24 at the same time a second woman approached. Without warning, the two vehicles slammed head-on in the vicinity of Exit 167.
Tragically, the wrong-way driver died upon impact, while the second woman and a child accompanying her had been sent to a local hospital for treatment.
A recent report has stated that the father of the victim says she will be released soon.
