(Forsyth County, GA) One person is dead after two vehicles were involved in a rollover crash on GA 400 on Monday, March 6.

Around 8:25 a.m. on the morning of the crash, the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) reported that the 911 Center began receiving calls concerning a rollover crash involving a vehicle and tanker truck between exits 13 and 14 on GA 400 southbound.

A preliminary investigation found that the 2016 HINO single tanker unit (which was carrying compressed CO2 and several CO2 containers) was driving in the outside lane while a 2016 Hyundai Elantra (which had a passenger) was driving in the middle lane.

Public Information Officer Stacie Miller said that when the Hyundai tried to switch to the right lane, it struck the HINO truck. This caused both vehicles to drive off the right side of the road and flip.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Sharon Hall, 54, was in the passenger seat of the Hyundai when it crashed. She had to be extracted from the car and airlifted to a trauma center. She died that same day at Northeast Georgia Medical Center.

Miller said that “driver error” seems to be the only cause of the crash.

The FCSO is continuing to investigate the incident.
