Three injured, one charged in Wednesday night crash on I-24 in Dade Co.
Three people were injured in a crash Wednesday night in Dade County near the Tennessee/Georgia state line.
Around 7:45 pm, the driver of a Ford F450 lost control while traveling eastbound on I-24. The truck left the roadway and struck a guardrail, according to a Georgia State Patrol spokesperson.
A pickup truck the Ford F450 was hauling disconnected from the truck and spun into the right lane, while the F450 spun into the left lane.
A tractor-trailer, that was also traveling eastbound on I-24, struck both the F450 and the pickup. The 18-wheeler then skidded off the road, hit a guardrail and jackknifed, the spokesperson continued.
The F450 and pick up both spun again after the tractor-trailer struck them. The F450 ended up hitting the 18-wheeler before it finally came to a stop.
The driver of the F450, Christopher Scott, was taken to an area hospital. He has been charged with failure to maintain lane and use of safety belts in passenger vehicles, the GSP spokesperson added.
The passenger in the F450 and the driver of the tractor-trailer were also taken to area hospitals. Their conditions are unknown.
